27. How has the HBV treatment landscape changed?

We met a while back and looked at the treatment landscape and looked at the historical development: interferon 1992, lamivudine 1998, adefovir 2002, diagnostic progress- we only had serology back in the old days. Then we got a DNA assay although it wasn’t so accurate and now we have PCR. Therefore we have to rethink what we do.
