Precore or Inactive?
Aug 3, 2004
My test results follow:
Hep B Surface Ag Positive Hep B e Antigen Negative Hep B e AB Positive HBV DNA Count 2000 copies/ml April 2004 18000 copies/ml July 2004
My liver function has always been normal and I never have had hepatitis symptoms.
I am told I have the precore mutant and should start Adefovir. Could I just be inactive? Any problems with starting the drug based on above data?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
no problem at all. I offer it to patients frequently. You might also want to consider a liver biopsy. DTD
