my new treatment for hbv
Jun 7, 2006
THanks for this forum! I have been diagnosed for 3 years with hep B chronic. I went on Hepsera and my viral levels got worse during my year of treatment liver function was at about 18% I went to a new doctor who got coulcel from University of Miami. I HIV- and am now on Epiver and Viread ( experimental for HBV only). And the virus has become non detectable and my liver is functioning at 100%. I will probably going to have to take this for the rest of my life and it is exspensive. I just though some of you readers would like to know that there are alternate meds and new ones on the way
