Treatment of chronic hepatitis B has shown a rapid development in the last years leading to a shift of treatment strategies from interferon to hepatitis B virus (HBV)-polymerase inhibitors. In particular, treatment with HBV-polymerase inhibitors has changed the indication on how to treat a patient and when to stop therapy.

This review provides a strategy on how to manage HBV therapy with the currently available treatment options.
