|Study Start Date :||July 2008|
|Primary Completion Date :||December 2009|
|Study Completion Date :||January 2011|
|Experimental: Entecavir, 0.5 mg QD||
Tablets, Oral, 0.5 mg, once daily (QD), 52 weeks
Adefovir, 10 mg QD/Entecavir, 0.5 mg QD
Tablets, Oral, 10-mg adefovir QD for 12 weeks followed by 0.5-mg entecavir QD for a maximum of 52 weeks
- Percentage of Participants Who Achieved a Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) DNA Level <50 IU/mL at Week 12 by Polymerase Chain Reaction Testing [ Time Frame: At Week 12 from Day 1 ]HBV DNA Level <50 IU/mL=approximately 300 copies/mL.
- Percentage of Participants Who Achieved an HBV DNA Level <50 IU/mL at Week 48 by Polymerase Chain Reaction Testing [ Time Frame: At Week 48 from Day 1 ]HBV=hepatitis B virus. HBV DNA Level <50 IU/mL=approximately 300 copies/mL.
- Mean log10 Reduction From Baseline in Serum HBV DNA Level by Polymerase Chain Reaction Testing [ Time Frame: At Weeks 12 and 48 from Day 1 ]HBV=hepatitis B virus
- Percentage of Participants Who Achieved Normalization of Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) [ Time Frame: At Weeks 12 and 48 from Day 1 ]ULN=upper limit of normal. ALT normalization= ≤1*ULN, among participants with baseline ALT >1*ULN
- Percentage of Participants With Loss of Hepatitis B e Antigen (HBeAg) and Hepatitis B e (HBe) Seroconversion [ Time Frame: At Weeks 12 and 48 from Day 1 ]
- Number of Participants With Hepatitis B s Surface Antibody (HBsAG) Loss and HBsAG Seroconversion [ Time Frame: At Weeks 12 and 48 from Day 1 ]
- Number of Participants With Genotypic Resistance to Entecavir [ Time Frame: At Week 48 from Day 1 ]
- Number of Participants With Adverse Events, Treatment-related AEs, Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), Treatment-related SAEs, Death as Outcome, Discontinuations Due to AEs, and Abnormalities in Laboratory Test Results (LTR) Leading to Discontinuation [ Time Frame: Continually from Day 1 through Week 48, and through 24-week follow-up period ]AE=any new unfavorable symptom, sign, or disease or worsening of a preexisting condition that may not have a causal relationship with treatment. SAE=a medical event that at any dose results in death, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or drug dependency/abuse; is life-threatening, an important medical event, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect; or requires or prolongs hospitalization. Treatment-related=possibly, probably, or certainly related to and of unknown relationship to study drug.
- Percentage of Participants With Grade 3 or 4 Abnormalities in Laboratory Test Results [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Week 48 ]Hematology testing assessed levels of hemoglobin, white blood cells, platelets, neutrophils, international normalized ration, red blood cells, lymphocytes, and monocytes.
