Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient is currently receiving antiviral, immunomodulatory, cytotoxic or corticosteroid therapy.
  • Patients previously treated with interferon, peg-interferon or other immunomodulatory within the previous 6 months.
  • Patients previously treated with clevudine, lamivudine, adefovir, entecavir, telbivudine, Tenofovir or any other investigational nucleoside for HBV infection.
  • Patient with clinical evidence of decompensated liver disease (Total bilirubin < 2.0mg/dL, Prothrombin time < 1.7(INR), Serum albumin≥3.5g/dL)
  • Patient is coinfected with HCV, HDV or HIV.
  • Patient has a history of ascites, variceal hemorrhage or hepatic encephalopathy.

  • Patient is pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Patient has a clinically relevant history of abuse of alcohol or drugs.
  • Patient has a significant immunocompromised, gastrointestinal, renal,
  • hematological, psychiatric, bronchopulmonary, biliary diseases excluding asymptomatic GB stone, neurological, cardiac, oncologic(except HCC)or allergic disease or medical illness that in the investigator's opinion might interfere with therapy.
  • Patient has creatinine clearance less than 60mL/min as estimated by the following formula: (140-age in years) (body weight [kg])/(72) (serum creatinine [mg/dL]) [Note: multiply estimates by 0.85 for women]
