I have read that hepa b can be cure, once cured, are you hepa b negative?
Response from Dr. McGovern
I think you are referring to hepatitis B treatment and whether it is possible to lose hepatitis B surface antigen.
Yes it is possible to lose hepatitis B surface antigen - but this is very uncommon.
The usual response to successful treatment is hepatitis B e antigen seroconversion which is associated with lower replication of virus and less active liver disease.
