how does it help?
Sep 9, 2007

I've read from a column in the internet that says "(entecavir (baraclude) does not cure Hepatis B" how can it help then?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Excellent question. Entecavir, or any drug that has activity against hepatitis B, helps the liver by suppressing virus. When this occurs, inflammation dies down as well and the liver becomes healthier.
