Hepa B
Aug 28, 2011

Please help me to understand the result of my lab im quite confused: HBsAg w/ titer 0.460 COV 1.000 NONREACTIVE Anti HBs (CMIA) >1000.00 mIU/mL COV 10.000 REACTIVE HBeAg (CMIA) 0.285 COV 1.000 NONREACTIVE Anti HBe 0.020 COV 1.000 REACTIVE *Anti HBe count below the cut-off value is considred reactive Anti HBc IgM (CMIA) 0.060 COV 1.000 NONREACTIVE Anti HBc Total (CMIA) 10.050 COV 1.000 REACTIVE

I was vaccinated with Hepa B vaccine last 1998 without a booster 6 months after we have sexual contact with my husband. My husband was diagnosed with chronic hepa B. Is the result of my lab indicates i have a hepa b virus on my body? Do i need to boost my vaccine?

your reply is much appreciated.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your blood tests suggest to me that you were exposed to hepatitis B in the past but you cleared the infection and you are NOT at risk for liver disease based on these results.

Hepatitis B results
Would it be possible to get HCV from this type of exposure?
