@chiakabueze,thank you for contacting MMB. I’m sorry to inform you that there is no proven medical cure for Hepatitis B at the moment. However, there is some positive news. There are medications and Injections that can keep the virus from multiplying in the body and thus prevent further damage in the Liver. These are Interferon injections and Antiviral tablets (Lamivudine). Research is still on going for a total cure of Hepatitis B. We are hopeful of a cure in the nearest future.
