Response from Dr. McGovern

Panels of hepatitis tests give different information. If a person is e antigen reactive then they usually have a significant amount of virus in their bloodstream. However, this test does not tell you if a person has liver disease.

I think better to ask you !
pls read dear dr. Mc.Govern...
