Vaccine is useless for those who already infected with Hepatitis B. It can't cure you and it can't help you anymore if you are infected already.

Do you have your liver enzymes checked (ALT & AST) and Anti Hbc? You MAY be a candidate for treatment. Have a hepatologist or Infectious Medicine Doctor consult.

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

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
