|HBsAg & HBsAb
Feb 5, 2009
hi,, my lab result was HBsAg nonreactive; HbsAb reactive. can u pls explain me this result? does d result tells me that im infected with HEPA B?.. im so confused..
Response from Dr. McGovern
You are not chronically infected with hepatitis B since your HBsAg test is nonreactive.
Your surface antibodies indicated protection.
I don't know if you are protected because of prior infection that cleared or.... prior vaccination.
I would get a hepatitis B core IgG test. If positive, you had prior infection that cleared. If negative, you were immunized in the past.
need a clarification
