About HBs positive
May 21, 2011

is it possible to cure HBs positive?

Response from Dr. McGovern

If you are referring to chronic HBV infection - we do not use the word CURE for this disease since it is possible for relapse to occur even after viral suppression is achieved. That is why careful monitoring over time is necessary - even in patients who did well on treatment.
