World Health Organization HBsAg

HBsAg can be detected in the serum from several weeks before onset of symptoms to months after onset. HBsAg is present in serum during acute infections and persists in chronic infections. The presence of HBsAg indicates that the person is potentially infectious.

Very early in the incubation period, pre-S1 and pre-S2 antigens are present. They are never detected in the absence of HBsAg. Hepatitis B virions, HBV DNA, DNA polymerase, and HBeAg are then also detected. The presence of HBeAg is associated with relatively high infectivity and severity of disease.
