Response from Dr. McGovern

There are various medications for hepatitis B including entecavir, pegylated interferon alfa 2a, adefovir and lamivudine. Furthermore, more treatments are on the way.

These medications can suppress the virus well; however, I wouldn't necessarily use the word "cure" since the virus can hide within the cell.

hbv vaccine
Anti HBeAg Antibody
