Özet

Objectives: Pegylated-interferon (Peg-IFN) alpha 2a/2b and nucleoside and/or nucleotide analogues (NAs) are currently the only two treatment approaches approved for the chronic hepatitis B (CHB). To date, few studies have compared Peg-IFN with NAs in the treatment of CHB. We aimed in this study to evaluate the effectiveness of Peg-IFN and potent NAs (entecavir and tenofovir disoproxil) and to compare cumulative virological and serological resnonses in Turkish CHB patients treated between 2006 and 2016.
