Patients with HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B
ALT greater than 2 times normal or moderate/severe hepatitis on biopsy, and HBV DNA >20,000 IU/ml.These patients should be considered for treatment.
Treatment should be delayed for 3 to 6 months in persons with compensated liver disease to determine if spontaneous HBeAg seroconversion occurs.
Patients with icteric ALT flares should be promptly treated.
Treatment may be initiated with any of the 6 approved antiviral medications, but pegIFN-α, adefovir or entecavir are preferred.
ALT persistently normal or minimally elevated (<2 times normal).These patients generally should not be initiated on treatment.
Liver biopsy may be considered in patients with fluctuating or minimally elevated ALT levels especially in those above 40 years of age.
Treatment may be initiated if there is moderate or severe necroinflammation or significant fibrosis on liver biopsy.
