Response from Dr. Holodniy
You don't indicate why this test was obtained and whether other tests for HBV were also obtained. That is a relatively low copy number for HBV, but likely indicates chronic infection with HBV. You should consult with a liver specialist as to the interpretation and whether treatment is indicated at this time.
