Response from Dr. McGovern
Your goal is complete viral suppression and you want to keep it that way. As long as virus is detected you are at risk for liver disease and you are also at risk for drug resistance. So it is important to continue entecavir, which is a great drug for HBV.
The duration of your treatment once you become suppressed will depend on your HBeAg status.
