  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to find out if taking a combination of telbivudine and adefovir or tenofovir and telbivudine can lower the amount of Hepatitis B virus in patients that have been taking adefovir alone for at least 5 months and have had less than optimal responses. The safety of taking telbivudine and adefovir together or tenofovir and telbivudine together will also be studied.
