Oct 12, 2011

anti hbs reactive means? is this mean im a carrier of the hepa B?

Response from Dr. McGovern

It can mean one of two things based on other test results:

1. it means past infection with clearance if the core antibody is also positive (anti-HBs)

2. if the core is negative, it means you were vaccinated in the past.

Hep C Test
Please Elaborate
