you have to see your doctor....so that he can give you some medication for your illness
it can cost to much but we have to accept my fact bro. that we have to cure our illness
right? so go a head you are to young you have to cure it. take care and God bless
yes if you test hbsag with old assays which cannot detect all hbsag mutants, just make test with abbott architect or even better with siemens
Researchers Identify Lab Test That Detects HBsAg with Mutations
Mutations in HBsAg can cloak or hide HBV infection in donated blood or in patients undergoing lab tests for hepatitis B. Researchers have been trying to develop more sensitive tests that can identify HBV in blood, even when HBsAg mutations are present.
Recently, a team of European researchers tested 147 blood samples containing HBsAg with varying mutations with two generations of a commercial HBsAg test (Enzygnost® HBsAg 5.0 and 6.0, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Products) to see which test was more effective.
The second test was more accurate in identifying HBsAg with mutations.
“The results showed that modifications in design of the assay (test) improved considerably the ability of the test to detect HBsAg mutants, and that difficulties in detecting such HBV variants should not be expected with the routine use of the test in diagnostic laboratories and in blood transfusion centers,” researchers wrote in the Journal of Medical Virology.
being in philippins you have only very old assays available, anyway just test hbvdna pcr/alt to follow your infection since 99% probability hbsag is in your blood being hbsab negative
?! Does it mean that there actually can be an infected blood in the blood banks right now? Today
yes if they check with old eclia methods and not with the new machines but i guess they do use the newest machines for that screening
Have I understood this correctly? -April.
yes you do
in my local hospital they even changed abbot architect with siemens, i guess that is the reason but also architect gets almost all variants
these hbsag mutants are rare but of course they might end up in blood donations, as to blood transfusions the best way is to use our own blood collected before operations and never use other blood except in emergency cases or hughe quantities needed
The doctor conclude na NON-Reactive na daw ako. then retest ulit after 6 months to monitor. Di ko lang alam what to do next. I'm planning to apply for work abroad don sa mga bansang di gaanong strict sa hepa-b. Non-reactive is considered as carrier din ba?
