Dr. Lok (OC): This is very classical of patients with E-antigen negative chronic Hepatitis, they tend to run a fluctuating course. The fact that he's E-antigen negative, does not mean that he does not have active virus replication, because we now know that there's a variant of Hepatitis B virus these patients can continue to have active HBV DNA level and active liver disease.
