Possible yes: Natural history of hepatitis b leads to strong immunity against disease without treatment, Lamivudine is used for hepatitis b that is chronic( your body is unable to buld a strong immune responde against it and when the disease endangeres your liver function. Basically the drug slows down viral replication. So there is a chance it may lead to a complete halt of viral replication
