just check our latest posts

the only cure is mking hbvdna undetactable by tenofovir for 1-3 years and then peginterferon add on for another 2 years

hbsag quantification in iu/ml by abbott architect is needed to monitor this therapy and predict hbv clearance.
hbvdna test is just needed during the first 1-3years of tenofovir monotherapy to verify hbvdna is completely suppressed so immune system can be rescued

if you are looking for a fast cure there is none, even acute hbv is cleared in 6-12 months, cronic (chronic) needs much more time

check ur ILB 28 GENOTYPE.if its favourable for interferon treatment do it .
Hbsag will be negative.
But main pblms u should have a genetype which is favourable for the traphy.

Otherwise no options to get it cleared .
Only we can suppress

if you make claims post the studies link

only hbsag quantity can increase response to peg not Ilb28, still not useful for hbv, only hcv showed a clear correlation

Even I got amazed that the doctor never asked me to do ilb28 test if there was any need for that.

the test has been checked on research trials and it had no effect on hbv pegintf response

The test does have effect on HBV Genotype D (they tested it for some other genotypes but with less convincing results), your compatriot Lampertico had a study on it:
