Suboptimal viral suppression with adefovir (ADV) poses a challenge in managing chronic hepatitis B. Few studies have evaluated the efficacy of entecavir (ETV) in ADV-experienced patients. Our aim is to assess treatment effectiveness of ETV in ADV-experienced patients.ADV-experienced patients switched to ETV were enrolled from six US clinics. Patients completed a median of 24 months of ETV after switch. Patients were categorized into partial responders (detectable HBV-DNA at switch) or complete responders (undetectable HBV-DNA at switch) to ADV. Primary and secondary outcome measurements were complete viral suppression (CVS, HBV-DNA?
