HBV-DNA RESULT
Jan 18, 2008

I recently had HBV-DNA and the results are shown below.

RESULT: 300 IU/ML (1,745 COPIES/ML)

REMARKS: 1. HBV-DNA VIRAL LOAD-RT PCR (TAQMAN) DETECTION LIMIT: 6-110,000,000 IU/ML (35,-640,200,000 COPIES/ML) 2. SPECIMENS WITH LESS THAN 6 IU/ML (LESS THAN 35 COPIES/ML) IS BELOW THE DEFINED RANGE OF THE TEST. 3. SPECIMENS WITH GREATER THAN 110,000,000 IU/ML (GREATER THAN 640,200,000 COPIES/ML) IS ABOVE THE DEFINED RANGE OF THE TEST.

Please inform me what does these results mean?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It means your viral load is positive, and that you likely have chronic HBV infection.
