Which Hepatitis tests I should go for
I had undergone Hep B vaccination 2 doses only about 9-10 years back. I came in to contact with body fluid of unknown person yesterday and got myself re-vaccinated along with HBIG 1 adult dose.

What tests I need to undergo to check if I am infected at all?

Thanks Stefano

No I am not sure if I was vaccinated successfully 9 yrs back.  Now I got re-vaccinated  along with HBIG 1 dose for safety sake. Will this re-vaccination show up in HBSAB Titer test?

Hi. Just got my results-

HBSAG- Non reactive

Anti-HBS  - NON REACTIVE( 1.5 mIU/mL ).


I am perplexed as I remember taking 2 doses of vaccine 9 years back and again for good measure I took HBIG 2 days back along with 1 dose of vaccine. can you guide me?

vaccine will boost this to higer levels again in 4 weeks, but the risk of getting cronic hbv is zero even if you have such low antibody

yo might take vitamin d 4000iu daily, acetyl cystein and co q10 to boost immune response.these showed faster response to vaccines, all antioxidants/immune modulators

Can you please explain me how?  

How long does it take to generate anti HSB response after HBIG shot?

you have already hbsab memory from vaccine

How long does it take to generate anti HSB response after HBIG shot?
depends on your immune system fitness, a boosting dose vaccine should require short times.take antioxidants i told you especially vit D and you ll see an immediate result, sleep well and make a healthy life for at least 2-3 weeks

Sorry to bug you but how do you judge this about virus memory. The Anti HBS of 1.5 is very low and could be acquired by re-vaccincation received 2 days before tests.

Do  let me know of there is a PCR test which can clear things.
