1 may take forever since these antivirals have no activity on hbsag but many patients have lowering of hbsag due to improved immune fucntion thanks to lowered hbvdna
entecavir is too weak with very little hbsag clearance, only 5% on hbeag pos baseline, tenofovir has 16%, so you better combo and change it some time
2. It seems I will never be cured with the current treatment options including interferon, right?
no add on of pegintf has a 90% response with lowering of hbsag to very low levels with probable clearance in the following years (peg response lasts 5-10years onc achieved) and 60% of hbsag clearance, so the chances of not clearing on pegintf add on are very very low
3. What about REP9AC? Does it work on me to cure?
we dont have it so to me it is useless to talk about dreams
change doctor right away, from answers you see he is not updated or not willing to use brain out of guidelines
as regards biopsy/fibroscan: your biopsy picked up a damaged tiny part of your liver while fibroscan made a mean level so it is more reliable, just follow fibroscan results every 6 months and see if it goes less than 5kpa
was your US free of nodules in the report?normal liver?
