Details

This one-hour webinar will summarize the data that supports the finite strategy of nucleos(t)ide analog (NA) therapy in patients with chronic hepatitis B. Further discussion on how the presenter practices the strategy. In the second half of the webinar, the presenter will present data that argues against the rationale of a finite NA therapy. The presenter will elaborate on why stopping NA before loss of HBsAg cannot be recommended. We will conclude with a twenty-minute discussion on the gaps in current knowledge, whether and how the practice can be individualized.
