HBsAg Anti-HAV IgM and Anti-HAV IgG RESULT
Feb 26, 2014

Please help me interpret the my lab result: HBsAg w Titer (Eclia) : non-reactive Anti-HAV IgM (Eclia):non-reactive Anti-HAV IgG (Eclia): non-reactive

Response from Dr. Taylor

From these results it sounds as though you do not have chronic hepatitis B nor A. However I cannot rule out a very new hepatitis B infection. Ideally next steps include vaccination against hepatitis A if possible, to protect you from a future infection, and getting checked for the hep B surface antibody. If the hep B surface antibody is non-reactive, ideally hep B vaccine is a great thing to do. If you cannot access the hep B surface antibody, getting vaccinated against hep B is still indicated and can only help.
