lab results
Oct 28, 2012

i did an antibody test for hep b . the range was between 1-100 and my results was 190.48. what does this mean? am i immune to it? can i get married to someone with chronic hep b?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate which HBV antibody test was performed. That result would generally indicate high levels of HBV antibody, likely to surface (HBsAb) or core (HBcAb) antigens, and in addition, immunity to infection if you had received the HBV vaccine or from previous natural infection.
