Hepatis B Lab results

Sep 10, 2005

I have Hepatis B (I am from Vietnam and my Mom could have transmitted to me when she gave birth to me 41 years ago). Recent 2005 labtest showed "reactive" to HB e AB. Also, HBV DNA, QN, PCR(IU/ML) level is 764H (ref range < 100 IU/ML), and HBV DNA, QN, PCR (copies/ML) is 1397H (ref <160 copies/ML). Last year (2004), the test showed "positive" for Hep B surface AG Conf, "reactive" to Hep B Surface Antigen, and "reactive" to HB Core AB, Total. What do these results mean and how is 2005 test compared to 2004 results? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

These test results indicate chronic HBV infection.
