Hapatitis Profile Results

Sep 29, 2007

Dear Dr. Holodniy

Please interpret test results below: HBsAG (+) Anti-HBs (-) Anti-HBc IgM (-) Anti-HBe (+) HBeAg (-) Anti-HAV IgM (-)

How severe is the infection? Does it need any medication? What other tests needed?

Thank you very much.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You cannot determine severity of infection from these results. A HBV DNA test could be helpful, and an evaluation by a liver specialist may be in order.
