Anti-Hbe & ANti-HBc reactive results
Sep 9, 2007

What is Anti-HBe reactive with absorbance of 0.984 cut off value is 1 and Anti-HBc reactive with absorbance of 0.875 cut off is 1. How long is the medication period?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not base any decision to treat based on these few tests. The most important tests to get include HBV DNA, Hepatitis B surface antigen and liver function tests to start.
