Antibody injection???

Wonder a question.  For COVID-19 virus, antibodies from a patient’s blood that recovered was used.  I think they extracted the antibody plasma from the recovered patients blood.  The sick was cured from the “liquid gold”.  

Could something like that be done with hep b.  Could you extract hbsab from acute hep b patients blood, just the antibodies, and injected into CHB patients, since they are missing the hbsab.  

Could that be the cure?

hbv is a totally different virus and the problem is not the virus itself at all, the problem is its dna template inside cell's nucleus (cccdna) which can regrow infection anytime even if you clear it....so hbsab antibody can work only when hbsag is very low/cccdna very low

even if you clear it....i mean even if you clear the virus you still have hbsag and cccdna.it is cccdna inside cells that must be cleared to get rid of this infection 100%

Yeah, mind was just wondering and I was pondering a question.   I was just curious.  Hepatitis B is very complicated virus infection.  

Stay well and positive every body

there is a study i posted about this, antibody hbsab injections is called HBIG and they tried it on hbsag less than 400iu/ml.it worked for those with hbsag less than 100iu/ml
anyway higher doses and longer treatment could be tried on these low hbsag patients using immune modulating natural compounds like cumin oil or drugs like nitazoxanide.the only problem is the high cost of HBIG and getting precription
i will try it myself when my hbsag will be around 200iu/ml (now 650iu/ml)
Those are good news. Hope you get to 200iu very soon
