Dr. Perillo (OC): This is obviously a case in which there is ongoing viral replication and it's what we would call E-antigen positive chronic Hepatitis B.... And that's why liver biopsy is so important because it really shows changes consistent with chronic Hepatitis B. Otherwise, if you did not have a biopsy, it's possible that this individual does have ALT elevation due to some other cause.
