Anti - HBe positive , is it a good sign ?
Apr 28, 2013

I am Anti-HBe positive , can i suppose that the virus is inactive just because of this anti hbe incidator ? Thanks

Response from Dr. Taylor

There are several different blood tests that tell us about hepatitis B.

Being Anti-HBe positive can be promising, but this does NOT mean that the virus is inactive. Talk to your doctor about your hepatitis B surface antigen, DNA level, ALT and HIV status.

Looking for answers for my Hep C
Hepatitis G
