If you have high HBsAB and negative HBsAg, you don't have HBV.

thank you again for your help cajim

so regardless of the positive(total) hep b. core antibody - negative surface antigen and surface antibody >500.0miu/ml

does it mean carrier? or NO HBV?

does it represent immunity ?

You are totally immune to HBV 500 is high enough because cut off is normally 10. Presence of core antibody (IgG) signifies previous HBV infection that has cleared. You are immune to future HBV infections I guess for life...
