This study is looking at the long-term results associated with entecavir (ETV), a drug for treating Hepatitis B. Enrolled subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio (50% chance of receiving either therapy) to an HBV treatment compromised of a single medication with either ETV or another standard of care HBV medication. Following randomization, the study will be observational. All patients will be followed for up to 10 years, with two visits per year, to assess clinical outcomes. Medication will be provided free of cost, as will the twice yearly visits. All other procedures will not be covered by the sponsor.

Eligibility Participants:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Diagnosed with Hepatitis B
  • Treatment Naive (have not previously been treated for Hepatitis B).
