HEP BS AB results
Oct 4, 2008

Can you interpret these results? Is it typical to have these results if given a vaccine in childhood?

HEP BS AB Value: Reactive flagged: A low:(NRX)


Response from Dr. McGovern

Yes, you want a protective surface antibody to form in response to a vaccine. The antibody titer can decline over time, so if you are exposed to HBV in the future, you will still want to be certain that you are protected.
