HB Postive !

some of you may remember me by my old nickname TheLover2010

I found my self infected with Hepatitis B in 2009-12 , since then I done PCR 3 times , the first result came with 5250 UI/ml
the second one came with 430 UI/ml ( Feb-2012 )
the last one came with 31UI/ml ( Nov -2012 )

here's the test result

؛ Hepatitis B
sample : 06.11.2012

؛  Circulating HBV DNA screen and quantification ( PCT TaqMan Roche )

31 UI/ml
1.49 log

Presence of a very low quantity  of hepatits B virus DNA to be interpreted cautiously .

Sensitivity : 20 IU/ml ( 1.30 log )
Linearity : 20-170,000,000 IU/ml ( 1.30 - 8.23 )
Conversion factor : 1 IU = 5.82

Change in technique since 12-08-2010

...........................................................................................

Please who ever of you doctors could help me understand the meanings of those line because I am really confused now , what does it mean ??

Hi TheLover201,
I  am not a Doctor but think the result is  nothing to be confused about.
Any Quantitative Analytical Method have what is call sensitivity or Limit of Quantification which is the minimum amount of analyte that can be accurately quantified.
You appeared t have been clearing the Virus with your medication or by ur immune system to keep monitoring the status as your results looks encouraging.
Goodluck
