Different types of recombinant antibodies ( e.g scFv, Fab) have been 
developed which can neutrelise hepatitis b virus . But these type of 
antibody can not protect onnce the virus replicating in the hepatocytes and 
starts drestroying them. Can these recombinant antibodies be used directly 
or in modified form( like as conjugated with toxin or as diabodies ) to help 
to clear the virus and to target infected hepatocytes? If you hav any idea 
or have done some work in these direction please inform me about that.
