Thank you - results were good!!
Nov 10, 2004

Dear Dr. Dieterich-

Thank you for answering my query "HBV transmission and window questions" a couple days ago. I really appreciate that these forums are here!

I received my test results today, and it was all negative for Hep A,B,& C!! My doctor did run both antigen and antibody tests and both were negative. So since the antigen came back negative at 4.5 weeks, sounds like I am in the clear? (She certainly seemed to think so.)

I did ask her about the vaccine as well, just to be on the safe side.

Thanks again for your great work here.


Response from Dr. Dieterich

Great news! Make sure you get vaccinated for Hep A and B! Stay well! DTD
