Can HBV cure with Peg-interferon

i heard 5% that i can be fully cure with peg-interferon

Dear @Suresh786,

Thanks for the question. The actual rate of cure depends on many things and will vary from person to person. For example, virus genotype (e.g. Genotype C responds worse than Genotype A) or current ALT level (better response rates if these are higher).

Hope this is helpful,
Thomas

Yes, approximately 5% of CHB patients can be “cured” by pegIFN therapy

How do I know my genotype. Can I know based on country I belong to

Some genotypes are more common in some countries than others, so you can make a guess using this. But the way to make sure is with a blood test for genotype, but this isn’t a routine blood test.
