|Difference of "anti Hav g" and "Hbsag" tests
Jan 13, 2013
Can you elaborate briefly the difference between those two test? Are they related? suppose there is a reactive result in anti Hav g, does this mean that the person has Hep B already?
| Response from Dr. Taylor
"Anti Hav g" refers to whether there is a recent hepatitis A infection.
"Hbsag" refers to whether there is a hepatitis B infection.
A reactive result in anti Hav g, does not tell us anything about hepatitis B.
