Hi i was just curious of what thi means i am positiv for te core antibody and negative for sur ag an negative for sur ab doesthe core ab mean that it is chronic.....or is it going away....

HBcore antibody is a marker for exposure to hepatitis B. The absence of HBs antigen indicates that you were exposed some time in the past (possibly recently) but you DO NOT have chronic infection.
