Please help: Hepatitis Profile Reading
My friend had a lab test and herewith are the results.

Can you help us read it.  Is he positive with Hepa B?

HEPATITIS PROFILE:   CUT-OFF VALUE    PATIENTS COUNT   RESULT
HBsAg                   0.058            3.399        REACTIVE
Anti-HBs                10.0             2.0          NON-REACTIVE
Anti-HBc IgG            1.000            0.040        REACTIVE            
Anti-HAV IgM            1.000            0.317        NON-REACTIVE        
HBeAG                   1.000            0.181        NON-REACTIVE
Anti-HBe                1.000            0.004        REACTIVE
Anti-HCV                0.320            0.052        NON-REACTIVE

Note: Anti-HBc IgG, Anti-HBe and Anti-HAV IgG, Anti-HCV count below the cut-off value is considered REACTIVE.

Thank you.

Sounds like he is positive for acute Hep B, but I'm not a dr.
Look at this website and scroll down to *How do I interpret serological lab results?*
http://www.cdc.gov/Ncidod/diseases/hepatitis/b/faqb.htm

It took me awhile to interpret as their lab values are listed as positive and negative, and your friends are listed as reactive and non-reactive.
I finally had to write it down as postive and negative as my little brain couldn't function switching back and forth between websites and changing reactive to positive and vice versa.
Don't count on me as the final word!

Since the HBsAg is reactive (positive), it means your friend has HepB.  If it's positive for more than 6 months, then it's consider chronic HepB, which most has no or vague symptoms.

If acute HepB, you normally feel very tired, discomfort in upper right chest area, and generally sick.  If acute infection is on adult, most will clear the virus.  In this case  HBsAg will be negative and Anti-HBs will be positive.

Either way, your friend should check for the viral DNA count and ALT / AST to check for active liver cell damage.
