I assume you mean that you are positive for the HepB virus (HBsAg +) but your HBV DNA (viral load) is Undetected or as you put it, negative.  Is this correct?  If so, it likely means that you have HepB but have an inactive disease.  And you should still monitor for disease re-activation.

cronic (chronic) hbv has flactuating hbvdna and alt/ast, you have to monitor and if liver damage develops start therapy

hbvdna pcr zero means no liver damage but doesn t say anything about the infection, to know if you are clearing you need architect hbsag quantification in iu/ml, if lower than 500iu/ml you are clearing virus, if higher cronic (chronic) carrier
