what is her status?i think doctors used the wrong words she is probably precore or bcp mutants like most of hbv infections, the wild type one has become the less common.

this is the profile for precore bcp, pratically almost all of our hbv infections
hbsag pos, hbsab neg, hbeag neg, hbeab pos

these might be the dangerous hbsag mutants
hbsag neg or pos
hbsab pos
hbvdna pos

if you ahev both hbsab and hbcab positive you are at very little risk and in any case even if you had infection again you don t feel it

don t worry then the doctor is a little ignorant on hbv, maybe he thinks like 10 years ago, the hbeab positive form is the most common form of cronic (chronic) hbv now and the precore/bcp mutation is normality now (we even know now this mutation is present in hbeag positive too)

the studies on hbv are very very advanced since that old view and the dangerous mutants are the hbsag and the polymerase mutants, actually the wild type never exsisted hbv is a always mutating virus with few mutants that can be more aggressive/dangerous

you are fully protected and your wife has normal cronic (chronic) hbv which is also less aggressive than hbeag pos

by the way test which precore/bcp mutant is present and which hbv genotype because some can promote liver cancer much more and according to hbvdna quantity therapy by interferon, entecavir or tenofovir is necessary
