Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
HBV DNA is a DNA examination of Hepatitis B virus, which indicates the level of viral replication (the ability to reproduce). If the value is more than 100,000 IU / ml, it is one of the bases for starting therapy. In your HBV DNA values are low and SGOT (liver function) is normal. Meanwhile the SGPT value is not listed in your question. However, the decision to start therapy is also based on clinical and other laboratory values. So in this case you should discuss with your internal medicine doctor.
In general, treatments that can be undertaken by patients with Hepatitis B, namely antiviral drugs and Alfa interferon.
Related to the next question, If you have been infected with a virus, Hepatitis B vaccine is no longer useful. Vaccination is an attempt to actively form the immune system by introducing a virus that causes disease that is attenuated or killed in the body by injection. Vaccination aims to prevent infection in the future.
Thus hopefully useful
