HBS potitve
Dec 13, 2007

Respected sir/madam,

Here I request to is there treatment for HBs positive.

Response from Dr. McGovern

If you are HB surface antigen positive, you also want to know more about your infection, such as whether you have virus in your blood and if you have liver disease per se.

If you do have chronic hepatitis, then there are a host of good drugs available, including entecavir, pegylated interferon, adefovir, telbivudine and others.
