Hepatitis Bs Antigen
Aug 27, 2007

My blood test show that my Hepatitis Bs Antigen is Positive and the Antibody is Negative. I'm a gay with a lover, and he is one Have Liver synosis with Hepatitis B Antibody >100. So i'm worried if it will pass the virus to him.

Response from Dr. McGovern

From what I understand, your lover has surface antibody that is >100. That would be a protective level that will protect him against infection.
