HBV PCR quantitative result

Nov 26, 2017

Result of HBV PCR quantitative is postive 333 copies/ml , do i need treatment ? And could the virus be transmitted through sexual interaction ? Thanks in advance.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That HBV viral load result would be considered very low. However, additional testing is required to determine whether HBV treatment is indicated at this time. I suggest you consult with a liver specialist to determine if treatment is required at this point. Yes, HBV can be transmitted sexually.

Is 4.96E+6 IU/mL <615 IU/L?
Hepatisis B viral load.
