Treating Acute HBV
Oct 22, 2002

I understand that hcv can be treated in its acute phase. Is there any indication that hbv can be treated acutely? Especially if there was a belief that the person couldnt clear it on their own.

Response from Dr. Fried

Most adults who acquire acute hepatitis B will clear it on their own. There is no role for HBV therapy in the acute phase.
