Response from Dr. McGovern

It appears that you have chronic hepatitis B e antigen positive infection. It is great news that your HBV DNA is suppressed on treatment. I assume you had detectable virus before starting treatment.

As for your partner, he needs a medical evaluation by a physician to check for hepatitis B and to immunize if he has never been exposed.

Dr. McGovern

HBV vacinated now HBV+
