Hep A
Jul 4, 2007

Hi, I got test results back that say Hep A Ab, Total Posivite Limits Negative, HBSAg Screen, Negative Hep B Core Ab, Tot Negative Hep B Surface Ab 720.0H mLU/ml Limits 0.0-8.9. May you please tell me what this means. Thank you.

Response from Dr. McGovern

You were exposed to hepatitis A in the past - this is of no concern since HAV does not cause chronic liver disease.

You are also protected from getting hepatitis B.
