how to eradicate hepatitis from thebody?
May 25, 2009

I am a chronic hepatitis b carrier. I want to know if there are some ways to completely eradicate this virus from my body?

Response from Dr. McGovern

For hepatitis B we use the word "viral suppression" rather than eradicate, because Hepatitis B cannot be "cured". HOwever, the infection can improve dramatically with treatment. Several drugs are available for treatment including entecavir, tenofovir, telbivudine, pegylated interferon, lamivudine, and adefovir.
