Hepatitis B Profile

I got a serum test for Hep B and got a negative result so I eventually get 3 doses of Hep B Vaccine.  After a year, I did another serum test and got this result:

Anti- HBs
Patient Count:  0.098
Cut Off Value:  0.105
Result:  Non Reactive

I know that this implicates that I am negative for Hep B.  What I don't know is whether I needed a booster or not.
So, do I need a booster?

This latest test result does not imply that you are negative for Hep B. It says you are not making any antibodies for HBsAg. You are not immune to Hep B.

I have come across some instances where they did not develop immunity after the vaccinations, and did the entire set of 3, all over again. Seems to have helped.

Means you have very little immunity. What about your HBsAg reading ?

BTW - please post your questions on a different thread.

HBs Ag positive (infected)
Hbs Ab Negative (no antibody - not good)
Hbe Ag negative  (less infectivity)
Hbe Ab positive   (less infectivity) the same as above
Hbc Ab positive   (good but maybe false alarm)

Its in acute stage?  if less than six month
Its in chronic stage?  if more than six month
It shows vaccination ? if you did vaccination

If your HBsAg is negative -you are ok.

my hbsAg test just came back and its non reactive, that means im ok, but do i have to be vaccinated again or just leave it as it is, i know i  have immunity but its just low, but i also read that you're immunity decreases with time, but the body already recognizes  the virus to have a memory of it. what should i do. tnx again

read the community, especially new posts, this is from 2009 and most has changed

hbvdna is one way of having an idea of hbv virus replication, but it is not useful as single test because hbv has a complex repliction cycle.hbsag quant and cccdna are much more reliable test to define infection
