This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of entecavir and/or tenofovir in compensated (CC) or decompensated (DC) hepatitis B cirrhotic patients in real-life clinical practice. Of the 48 patients, included between April 2007 and March 2010, 12 were DC. The mean age was 55 ± 12.2 years, 85.4% were Caucasians and 8 patients were HBeAg positive. Mean viral load was 5.2 ± 1.9 log(10) UI/mL. HBV-DNA undetectability at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months were 53.3%, 78.3%, 83.7% and 97.1%, respectively… CONTINUE READING
