How to interpret my HEP B AB QUANT (titer) results
Sep 1, 2010

My result is 5.03 mIU/mL the reference is 0.00- 9.99mIU/mL "STATUS OF IMMUNITY" Protective Immunity :greater than or equal to 10mIU/mL (Traceable to WHO International reference Preparation) No Protective Immunity: less than 10mIU/mL Note: The magnitud of the measured result above the cutoff is not indicative of the total amount of antibody present. I guess I am not understanding what a no-protective immunity mean.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your antibody level is not protective.

You will need another dose of vaccine as a booster.
