Background/Aims: The most prevalent type of chronic hepatitis B in Turkey is anti-HBe-positive. No consistently effective therapy is yet available for the treatment of these patients. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of interferon-alpha and thymosin-alpha(1) combination in the treatment of naive anti-HBe-positive and HBV DNA-positive chronic hepatitis B patients.
