Under Serology/Infectious Disease heading the following appears: FEBRILE AGGLUTINATION Rapid Plasma Reagin...Non-Reactive Treponema Hema. ......N.A. --------------------------------------- Anti-HCV (1gG)........Negative HIV...................Negative Hepatitis Bs Ag.......Negative Hepatitis Bs Ab.......Positive

Response from Dr. McGovern

It appears that you have been vaccinated for hepatitis B or had prior infection that cleared. You will need testing of HB core antibody to tell the difference.
