  Purpose
Telbivudine reduces DNA and normalizes alanine aminotransferase levels (ALT) in chronic hepatitis B patients with few adverse effects, but its use during pregnancy has not been explored. In this open-label, prospective study from the second trimester to post-partum week 28. This trial is to study the efficacy, safety and tolerability of Telbivudine in HBeAg Positive Chronic Hepatitis B Pregnant Women with high level of serum HBV DNA and elevated alanine aminotransferase levels.

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Hepatitis B Pregnancy Complications High Viral Load Elevated Alanine Aminotransferase Levels Drug: Telbivudine treatment Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in maternal HBeAg titers and lost/seroconversion of HBeAg or HBsAg [ Time Frame: From late pregnancy to 28 weeks of postpartum ]
