Chronic or Not?
Jul 4, 2001

After one year my results are: e antibody: Positive e antigen: negative Surface antigen: negative Surface Antibody: Non-reactive

What are the chances of the Surface Antibody showing up. At 6 months I still had the Surface antigen, but it has since disappeared..What are my options? Possible out comes?

On Road to Recovery

Response from Dr. Dieterich

You do not have hepatitis B anymore. To be doubly clear, you may want to ask for an HBV DNA test. It sounds like it is good news. DTD

screen postive but negative for confirmation
