Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe and evaluate the influence of a new antiviral treatment scheme on HBV replication and mutation during treating chronic hepatitis B.

METHODS:

In the test group, lamivudine, IFN alpha-2b, Astragalus membranaceus were chosen as a triplex superimposed treatment scheme for treating the patients who were on the state of HBV high replication and involved in the clinical condition of chronic hepatitis B. The control group was treated with lamivudine alone. The observed parameters percentage of patients in whom HBV DNA became undetectable (serum HBV DNA<1.6 ng/L), HBeAg/anti-HBe seroconversion rate; HBV DNA serum level; HBV YMDD mutation rate and pre-C region mutation rate.

RESULTS:

Compared with that of the control group, HBV DNA undetectable rate of the test group increased markedly at weeks 12, 36, 48(P <0.05), HBeAg negative rate of the group increased markedly at week 36, 48(P <0.05), while anti-HBe positive rate increased only at week 48 (31.58 vs.19.23%, P <0.05). After 4 weeks of treatment, HBV DNA serum level of both the test group and the control group reduced very remarkably (P <0.01), and at week 48, reduced more significantly (P <0.001). Compared with the control group, HBV DNA serum level of the test group reduced notably at week 12 (P <0.05) and very notable at week 36 and 48(P <0.01). At week 12, the pre-C region mutation occurred in the test group, and at week 24, 36,48, the pre-C region and YMDD mutations occurred in both the test group and the control group.

CONCLUSIONS:

As to anti-viral treatment of chronic hepatitis B, the triplex superimposed treatment had better efficacy than lamivudine alone.
