Permanent efficacy response after whole treatment circle close(about 24 weeks,someone may be later than 24 weeks but within 48 weeks)

- HBeAg loss(if HBeAg positive)

- Liver Function normal(if Liver Function off normal)

- HBV DNA non-detectability (PCR <500 copies/ml)

- Image of chronic diffuse hepatic disease will recover up to normal if have.

- HBsAg titer will decrease continually up to loss after cessation of the treatment.

Treatment Procedure:

Patients will be involved in the study for up to 24-48 weeks from enrollment. There is no external sponsor, commercial sponsor nor governmental agency on this study. The study will be conducted only by Dr. Yu, Ke Heng,who is master of the Liquid Acupuncture(Herb Acupoint Injection)practice more than 30 years.About 30 subjects will be involved in the study overall.
