e-ANTIGEN, E-ANTIBODY

Hi all,
      Recently i had blood-work done for HB-e antigen and e-antibody. My HBeAg (e-antigen) is negative and Anti-HBe (e-antibody) is positive. What does that mean?

Thanks in advance,
Howard

5 months ago, my viral load was ~1900 copies/ml. It has been always between 900-3000 in last one year.

My up-to-date viral load result will be in, next week.

THanks,
Howard
