hbv infection cant be define by a single test, almost all single tests are meaningless, it is the whole of them to make the status.here s all the minimum tests:
hbsag quantitative in iu/ml (only 2 machines available since 2000 do it, abbott architect and lately elecsys roches, all other machines useless)
liver function tests
hbv is chronic from birth, only 2,8% of adults cannot clear it by immune system so it is extremely rare to get it while adult.it is mostly a benigne disease once monitored and can be cleared by sequential treatment of tenofovir 5-10years and peginterferon add-on
