Difference between Chronic and Acute Hepatits B
Sep 1, 2009

Iwould like to ask f what is the difference between a Chronic and Acute Hepatits B? What test should I look for to know if I have a Chronic or Acute Hepatitis B?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Acute HBV is characterized by a anti-core IgM test while chronic infection is characterized by a reactive HBsAg test and an anti-core IgG test.

Need your assessment !
