He points out that hepatitis C, once thought to be incurable, is today cured with new combination treatments.

And the need for a cure has never been greater, with more than million people worldwide living with chronic hepatitis B, causing 1 million deaths per year from related liver failure and liver cancer.
These drugs work in only half of the infected population and reduce death rates by only about 40 to 70 percent. What will a cure look like?
The available antivirals are similar and combining them offers no advantage.
A cure, therefore, would have to destroy or silence cccDNA and provide long-term immunity. Because one-drug treatments can lead to drug resistance, a cure would almost certainly involve combination therapy, similar to hepatitis C.
With the recent advances in hepatitis B research, scientists are optimistic that another big leap in the search for a cure is possible if new complementary drugs are identified. Blumberg Institute of the Hepatitis B Foundation is at the forefront of research efforts to discover such new drugs.
Blumberg scientists have played a key role in increasing understanding of the virus life cycle and are designing and developing ways to test new drugs. This is significant because inhibition of cccDNA is considered essential in achieving a complete cure.
Block is confident that a drug that can accomplish this will be developed. Inthe Blumberg Institute licensed several of its discoveries to Arbutus Biopharma, the first company solely dedicated to hepatitis B drug discovery, and signed a three-year research agreement to work on novel approaches to developing a cure.
Adding to its drug arsenal, Blumberg researchers have used computer modeling to design and produce targeted drugs against hepatitis B and liver cancer.
Blumberg is the only group to identify the first small molecule inhibitor of HBV cccDNA, which has now been made highly active and is licensed to Arbutus Biopharma for further development.
It has screened thousands of plant and fungal extracts from our extensive Natural Products Collection and identified two new leads that show potential activity against HBV.

Anyhow, many thanks for your trying. We are hoping for a treatment also, thank you. October 25, at I feel an slight annoying pain at my lower right abdomen when i sit. Im doing all my regular check ups and doctor says everything is normal. Now recently doctor advised me to take medicine named Tenofovir Disproxil every day.
Any idea how effective these tablets are??.
I am 28 years old. October 26, at 4: Medical guidelines recommend treatment if you experience any liver damage. Your doctor has probably decided that you require treatment, and tenofovir is an excellent antiviral that is very effective in lowering viral load and reducing your risk of liver damage.
Experts predict a cure will be found in the next few years, we remain optimistic! May 17, at I moved last year and the new doctor took me off of it without any explanation? I asked the new doctor and all she said was I no longer need it.
Any suggestions for what to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated. May 17, at 1: We agree with your former doctor.
