Hepatitis screening results
Jul 25, 2005

My results came back Hep B Sur Ab :reactive, Hep B Sur Ag: #1 then it said #1 Hep B Sur Ag :non-reactive and Hep C Ab: non-reactive. Please Help.

Response from Dr. McGovern

If your only positive hepatitis B marker is surface antibody, that is consistent with vaccination. However, you would want your doctor to check your core antibody as well to determine if you have been exposed to the virus in the past.

You have not been exposed to hepatitis C.

Dr. McGovern

Hep C treatment?
Results after 2 month of treatment hep B?
