i think stef and stephencastlecrag with studyforhope will discover the drug that will kill hbv in a week without any side effects ..
i really appreciate thier efforts in this forum ..
Thanks a lot steff. your comments helped me a lot. Really obliged to the community.
This community is a big stress releiver
If thats the case then there is still hope
yes i am taking Vit D along with that
remember to make your vitd25oh levels high like 90-100ng/ml, with low vitamin d there is peginterferon non response
all the studies of hbsag kinetics on peginterferon, you have to look for the latest studies on 2012-2013, only european studies and some asian ones since other countries dont use hbsag quantitative.also all members of the community who cleared fast had low hbsag
all the studies are also posted here if you search carefully
it is also obvious it is well known since 2009 that high hbsag makes pegintf non response
How do u know the probability of getting rid of HBsAg is high ??
I have searched the literature and it says 3% after an year
9 % after 3 years and 12 % after 5 years are the chances of loss of HBsAg
the baseline HBsAg was 20 IU/ml
now after 11 inj pegasys its 18 IU/ml Quantitative
the first result of pegintf is at 24 weeks, if you are at 11th week it is too early, it might even rise in this period
is baseline hbsag 18iu/ml?why you did not write the unit after the number?
if it is something like 10-20iu/ml you ll clear 99%, according to genotype even values 200iu/ml are cleared with highest probability.the rule is the lower hbsag the more pegintf response because it has been found that hbsag suppresses both interferon and our immune system
You were already low. I don't think IFN works on low HBsAg.
HBsAg values are quantitative in IU/ml
