Response from Dr. McGovern
I am sorry but I am not sure which of these medications are available in the Philippines.
Pegylated interferon has higher rates of HBeantigen seroconversion than other oral medications. This medication has generally more side effects than the other drugs on this list.
Adefovir has a slower effect on lowering virus than entecavir; its rates of resistance are much lower than lamivudine.
