My father has the HBV virus and has receive treatment with *INTERFERONI. After a HBV DNA test he receive this results; 3.1x10 copies/ml with a sensitivity of the test>1x1000 copies/ml. I would like to ask you about his contition and what means this numbers.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I can't speak to his condition. You don't indicate what the viral load was prior to treatment or how into treatment this test was obtained. All I could say is he has probably had a response to treatment.
