Hepatitis b cleared
Jun 8, 2014

I have my test it say my HBsAg negative /anti hbc igm negative/anti hbc positive /anti hbs qul reactive / is that mean I cleared the hep b infaction and if I have cleared the infaction and I loss the anti hbs what will happens thank you very much

Response from Dr. Taylor

Yes this means you cleared your hep B infection and you are protected against reinfection. Over time the hep B surface antibody levels in the blood may decrease but you have immunologic memory and are protected against hep B. This is good news.
