hep b surface AB

Feb 3, 2011

Hi Doctor and thank you for your wonderful website: Labcorp result: <0.1 inconsistent with immunity 0.00 - 0.99 consistent with immunity >0.99 does that mean no booster shot for hep is needed?

Response from Dr. Frascino


The doctor who ordered this test should explain the results to you. Basically your result of < 0.1 indicates you are not immune to hepatitis B ("inconsistent with immunity"). Consequently you are still susceptible to acquiring the virus. Vaccination is warranted.
