this is done by architect but the labs tech must made diluition 1:1000 to get exact quantity of hbsag, any hbv carrier has quantities higher than 250iu/ml.....they are usually in the range 1000-50000iu/ml
Anti HBc- IgM- nonreactive 0.0 index
hbv is cronic, s/co quantitative can be usefull, a level of 0.08s/co or lower means inactive replication and no liver damage
treatments depend on liver damage, to know liver damage fibroscan must be done (or biopsy if no fibro machine available)
best treatment scheme is:
alinia 1 pill of 500mg every 5-6hrs with food to a total of 2g daily-monotherapy about 4 weeks.this drug has no sides and is very cheap so it can be useful to try a full year of this and see if hbsag declines
alinia+entecavir or tenofovir 1 year to hbvdna fully und
alinia+entecavir or tenofovir+interferon
another treatment scheme is:
alinia 4 weeks mono as above and then combo of alinia+interferon for at least two years
my suggestion is try alinia first and see if hbsag declines in 6-12months if it does keep using alinia until hbsag negative.never miss pills because hbsag rebounds immediately
since AFP, ALT,AST are noral.Viral count low ,can't we wait and watch. Monitor regularly. What is monitoring routine. She is totally asymptoatic.We are in eastern part of India. Facilities are still poorly developed
