Entacavir and tenofovir are two first line therapies for chronic hepatitis B. Both agents have been claimed equivalent in treatment, there are no head to head trials available in the literature about there effectiveness in HBV Decompensated Cirrhosis. The investigators aimed to compare safety/efficacy and virological response in patients with HBV Decompensated Cirrhosis.
The effectiveness of entacavir and tenofovir has not been prospectively studied in HBV Decompensated cirrhosis? This prospective, randomised clinical trial will help us in better patient management more efficacy and cost effectiveness.
