HBeAg stands for hepatitis B e antigen. This antigen is a protein from the hepatitis B virus which circulates in infected blood when the virus is actively replicating. The presence of HBeAg is indicative that the person is infectious and is able to spread the virus to other people. For more queries and assistance visit your doctor. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
