HBV-DNA PCR Negative

Nov 10, 2007


Just one year ago I recieved a HBV DNA PCR Result of 1741 copies/ml 2 weeks ago I repeated this test and I received a Negative result. (I will go to the lab and ask for a reptition to be sure also). I have not requested Hbsag test at this stage. But my Hbsag was still + 1 year ago. If the HBV-DNA PCR result is negative at this time what would that mean should I go and retest my Hbsag Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would retest the HbsAg, and if negative, it is likely the infection has cleared.
