Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy in terms of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) levels of the study intervention (that is, JNJ-73763989 + JNJ-56136379 + nucleos[t]ide analog [NA] and pegylated interferon alpha-2a [PegIFN-alpha2a]).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hepatitis B, Chronic Drug: JNJ-73763989 Drug: Tenofovir disoproxil Drug: Tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) Drug: Entecavir (ETV) monohydrate Drug: PegIFN-alpha2a Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This study is an intervention specific appendix to the Hepatitis B wings platform trial (PLATFORMPAHPB2001). The study title reflects the original study design and JNJ-56136379 (JNJ-6379) was initially part of the study intervention but has been removed as part of amendment 3 of the study.
