HBsAg Non Reactive after 10 years

Feb 3, 2013

Hi Doctor I have HBsAg Positive and HBV DNA Positive since 2002 when I was 21 year old. After 10 years my both the test are NON reactive. So can I assume that Now I m free from HBV and kindly suggest me about vaccination for future So that in future it remains as Non Reactive

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate whether you received treatment for HBV, which resulted in your HBsAg and HBV DNA becoming negative. You also don't indicate whether your surface or core antibody tests are positive or not. That will determine whether you now have natural immunity to HBV or not.

After 6 months still not undetectable on Atripla
id I need a break time if I change from treatment to the new one
