what does it mean if the HbsAg is higher from the previous the test? say from 2000+ it is now 6000+ ? but the pt is REACTIVE NON-INFECTIOUS? also what does it mean if you say NON-INFECTIOUS? is it safe to say that the person can not infect others even in unprotective sexual intercourse?
you have used an extremely obsolete test, change lab and ask for abbott architect with hbsag in iu/ml or roches hbsag quantitative in iu/ml
the test is complitely wrong with stating non-infections if reactive, it is almost a decade we have hbsag quantitative in iu/ml, using those tests is extremely dangerous because they dont detect all hbsag types
