But I'd wait another 2 weeks for viral load to increase. ...Read more

Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus.

She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more
