Hepatitis A

Mar 29, 2012

What is the meaning of Hepatitis A antibodies reactive

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Positive hepatitis A antibodies means that your immune system (or body) recognizes proteins from the hepatitis A virus. This could be the result of prior infection with the virus or vaccination.

The test does not discriminate between these two possibilities, nor indicate if you have active hepatitis.
