My test results are Hep B surface ag negative, HepB e Ag negative, Hep B e Ab positive, what does this mean
Response from Dr. McGovern
This sounds like a possible false positive Hepatitis B e antibody test. We usually don't see this in a person with a negatiave surface antigen.
You physician should call the laboratory director to discuss further. There may be a mistake or borderline positive test. More blood may be required for testing but I suspect it is a false positive test.
