Hep B
Feb 26, 2005

Can Hep B be cured?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Yes hepatitis B can be cured.

There are several treatments for hepatitis B and more are on the way.

The possibility of cure is also dependent on the patient. Patients who have higher liver function tests tend to do better on drug that patients who have only slightly abnormal tests, for example.

Dr. McGovern

Any chance for Hepa B to be negative?
