Wife immune, can I have kids without infection
Sep 9, 2007
Hello, thank you for your assistance.
My wife is HepB immune, I have HBSaG only, very low HepB DNA on PCR <100. If we have kids will they be immune from HepB?
Also, why do laboratories have different ranges of what is normal for ALT?
Response from Dr. McGovern
If your wife is HB immune, then she will not be able to pass the virus on through perinatal transmission.
