Response from Dr. Holodniy
The short answer is you need to continue the baraclude. Although you have had a good virologic response, the fact the your HBsAg is still positive indicates the virus is still present, although at a very low level of activity given the undetectable viral load. It is still positive to see your HBsAg become negative, but only time will tell whether that will happen.
