that test alone says almost nothing about hbv infection.it is not the number of virions and infection goes on even if hbvdna is undetactable, that value goes up and down by itself so it must be interpreted with all other tests.
the main test is fibroscan because it is the only one that can show liver damage
hbvdna undetactable is useless to clear virus, the virus is integrated in human dna by cccdna inside the liver cells so even getting hbvdna und in the blood the infection goes on inside the cells with cccdna duplicating with liver cells duplication
you have to check hbsag quantity in iu/ml which reflects quantity of cccdna inside liver cells, if it is lower than 1500iu/ml there might be chances with interferon+alinia, the other antivirals are useless because active on hbvdna only
my suggestion is wait if liver has no damage because there are really no drug to clear hbv now.interferon clears in 11% by 5 years if hbsag is low as 1500iu/ml, really too little to justfy all sides effects and cost
replicor, gcmaf or alinia might be able to clear hbv in a good number of patients but we have to wait and see if there are trials and results
