Thanks for adding me to this group. I was diagnosed back in 2006 ( I am 40 years old now) and it’s great to see how many support groups and communities there are for HBV sufferers like myself.
I’m currently on Tenofovir and have been on this for quite a number of years now. I’m also monitored via blood tests and US every 6 months and so far results have been good.
As with my questions to my liver nurse every annual meeting, I ask ‘any news of any new drug in the pipeline that will kill off the disease’. Every year the answer is ‘no’.
What do the scientists if this group reckon? Is there a possibility or will our best defence be the drugs that suppress the virus, with the hope it does not progess to liver cancer?
