Hepa B
Aug 14, 2014

If you were diagnosed with Hepatitis B, could you still work as a medical laboratory scientist?

Response from Dr. Taylor

Yes medically, but the 'rules' about this vary over the world. For example in the US you are permitted to have this job, but should be on anti-hep B medications and followed by a hep B doctor to ensure your HBV DNA level remains non-detectable.
