Hepa B test
Jan 1, 2007

My Hepatitis B SurfaceAtigen reslt is 2.608 posititve, My HDeAb result is positkive then My Hepatitis envelope Antigen result is 0.059 Negative however, my HBV-DNA result is430,726 IU/ML (2,506,825 copies/ML) What does these all mean?

Response from Dr. McGovern

These results indicate that you have chronic hepatitis B E antigen negative infection.

You will want to also obtain liver function testing to see if your LFTs are elevated. If so, you will want to discuss getting a liver biopsy to see if there is any liver damage.
