Hi, this is my hep b result a year and a half ago. Anti-HBe non reactive, Anti-HBcIgm non reactive, Anti-HAVIgm non reactive, HBsAg non reactive, Anti-Hbs non reactive, HBeAg reactive. what does it mean?

and what if everything is the same and the only difference is HBsAg reactive and HbeAg non reactive. what does this mean as well?


Response from Dr. McGovern

If you have a reactive HBeAg without a reactive HBsAg, I would think there is a lab error.

However, a HBsAg reactive test should have follow up with a HBV DNA to determine if there is active infection.

HCV Positive A
hepatitis c
