Hep B Clearance
Dec 22, 2007
Is it possible for people who have been diagnosed with chronic hepatitis B to clear this virus in their own? If yes in what circumstances?
Response from Dr. McGovern
A small minority of patients have complete seroconversion, where they lose hepatitis B surface antigen. It is not known why a few lucky people have that event and the vast majority of people don't.
