Hep. B reactive.
Oct 15, 2013

if I had the Hep. B Injections would my labs come back as Hep. B Reactive?

Response from Dr. Taylor

The hepatitis B surface antibody should come back reactive after successful vaccination. There are a number of different blood tests that tell us a number of things about hepatitis B; if this is NOT the reactive result, please check with your doctor.

Hep C infectious if someone has "cleared" the infection?
