Response from Dr. McGovern

If you underwent hepatitis B therapy, this is excellent news since you have lost your surface antigen (the marker of chronic disease). This is excellent news!

You will need further follow to see if you will gain your surface antibody (the marker of protection). I hope that your next blood test will show a surface antibody that is reactive.

hepatitis c
