hepatitis b laboratory results
Feb 18, 2008

my laboratory test result is as follows: HBsAg 0.340 cut off, 2.703 patient count, REACTIVE. Anti-HBs 0.308 cut off, 0.152 patient value, NEGATIVE. HBeAg 0.380 cut off, 0.135 patient value, NEGATIVE. Anti-HBe 0.616 cut off, 0.171 patient count, REACTIVE. Anti-HBc IgG 0.609 cut off, 0.101 patient count, REACTIVE. Anti-HBc IgM 0.364 cut off, 0.203 patient count, NEGATIVE. What should I do to be negative in HBs Ag? Thank you.

Response from Dr. McGovern

You need to see if you have HBV DNA - evidence of viral replication. If not, no treatment is indicated.
