Hello,
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!

today the tests for precore and bcp mutants are more and more available and some percentages are being studied, most hbeag negative have just a mutation of hbv to escape immune response that is bcp or precore especially on genotype D and this is a worsening of the disease despite lower hbvdna or normal ast-alt there is more damage to the liver and less response to peginterferon and nucs
