HBsAg with Titer

May 29, 2011

The result of my HBsAg with Titer is 0.230 cut-off value 1.000; Nonreactive. What does it mean? Do I need another shot of Hepa B vaccine?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't measure the effect of the HBV vaccine by testing for antigen. You should be getting a test for HBV surface antibody about one month after the third vaccine shot.

Hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) negattive but Hep B surface antibody (Anti-HBs) reactive
CD4 count
