he is cronic hbv, only hbsag quantitative can say if he is a real inactive carrier which is clearing slowly hbv

the tests is done by abbott architect with diluition, hbeag less than 1000iu/ml means he is inactive and hbsag<500iu/ml mens he is slowly going to clear hbv, may require years

if hbsag is so low interferon+tdf+alinia off label can clear hbv or even interferon alone

if hbsag is higher interferon has very little chances to clear
