Could you explain the following results: Hep B Sur Ag-Negative Hep B Sur Ab-Positive Hep B Core Ab-Negative
What does the Positive result stand for? Is it a risk/concern issue?
Response from Dr. McGovern
This is a good result because it means that you were vaccinated for hepatitis B and it worked.
hope to remember me
