Hi there,
Presence of antiHBs indicates previous or ongoing infection with hepatitis B virus over an undefined time frame.HBsAg negative, antiHBc positive and anti-HBs negative means there could be four possibilities. Either it is resolved infection which is most common, false positive anti-HBc, thus susceptible, low level chronic infection or resolving acute infection. Any test result should be correlated clinically. It is suggested to discuss this test result with your doctor. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!

my markers have been repetet testet the past years,and my Hbs-Ag remains negative,also the the other markers.
the hbv-dna was also UND everytime.
i will discuss this in my next hepa-visit, but my docs explained to as,i have resolved the infection but i have no immunity due the lack of anti-hbs.
