Apr 16, 2009
hello dr. i would like to ask a question you are possible familiar with, i would really appreciate your help. a person with these results: Hep. B surface antigen negative, Hep. B. surface antibody >500.0 and Hep. B. core ab. total. Positive. Does this person "currently" have a blood borne virus??? please help. thank you.
Response from Dr. McGovern
This serology is consistent with past exposure and clearance. An HBV DNA would certainly be non-detectable.
