Updated Test results, and interferon
Hey guys:

Just got my most recent labs.

sAg pos, anti-sAg neg.

cAg neg, anti-cAg neg.

eAg neg (used to be pos), anti-eAg pos (used to be neg)

ALT's down to 74 from 278, AST down to 39 down from 125.

Doc says it's a precore

Sorry... Accidentally hit submit.

... Mutant. Going for updated PCR test, first liver biopsy, and psych evaluation to begin interferon sometime before the end of the year. Doc thinks I have a good chance of clearance with interferon, as high as 25%, with interferon as opposed to antivirals.

Any thoughts? Has anyone cleared with interferon? How long did it take? What symptoms of interferon did you have?

Thanks!

discuss with your doctor a combo option (antivirals + interferon), look like this has the best chance.

also see http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Hepatitis-B/Pegasys-or-antivirals/show/1621917 they are a lot of good hints and good questions.
