Association of lamivudine-resistant mutational patterns with the antiviral effect of adefovir in patients with chronic hepatitis B.

Abstract

Adefovir has a potent antiviral activity as a rescue treatment against lamivudine-resistant strains. The aim of this study was to assess the patterns of lamivudine-resistant mutations and their influence on the virologic response to adefovir rescue therapy in patients with lamivudine-resistant chronic hepatitis B. Sixty-seven patients with lamivudine… (More)
