Hep B test results

Oct 6, 2006

Hi!A few years ago I found out I had chronic Hep B. I took Interferon for 1 year which lowered my HBV DNA levels ( were 620,000,000- now they r 260,000) My last lab results were HbsAg-Reactive AUSAB(???)-Negative HCV_3-Nonreactive COREM-Negative CORE-Reactive

The tests before last said also : AntiHBe_2--Reactive HBe_2--Nonreactive

Am I still contagious? Can you please help me understand them? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, you still have detectable HBV DNA and therefore infectious virus in your blood.

Law and Order SVU
From 80.200 copies to 1.160 in 35 days of treatment.
