Background and aim Viral load is used for the diagnosis and monitoring the treatment of chronic hepatitis B (CHB). These methods are molecular-based and are expensive. Previous studies suggest that quantitative hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) studied by automated chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay can be a surrogate marker. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether quantitative HBsAg correlates hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA levels during CHB treatment. Methods The study included… CONTINUE READING
