Based on your latest tests, it seems you have fully recovered from an acute infection of hepatitis B. You have lost the HbsAg(non-reactive) and gained antibodies to the surface antigen, anti-HBs (reactive).
It begs the question: why take Entecavir in the first place?
To be sure, you should do a hbvdna test - it should come back as "undetectable".
thanks very much sir..now im relieved..just post this question so that others will have some ideas also..i stopped taking entecavir last january 2012,,its been 11 months since i stopped taking entecavir..i would do hbv/dna test again as what youve said..
thanks for all of you guys who gives ideas and advices in this forum..really do a big help..
good evening...is it ok to have sex with my wife? is she safe? because i just have her hep b profile...she is negative with hbsag and hbeag..but her anti-hbs and anti-hbe as well as anti-hbc were non-reactive...thanks very much...
