Answer

Priority: Treat individuals of all ages who have chronic hepatitis B infection and clinical evidence of compensated/decompensated cirrhosis (or cirrhosis based on APRI score >2 in adults), regardless of their levels of alanine transaminase (ALT) or hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA, or their hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) status. (Strong recommendation)
