The test results should be correlated with the reference values of the lab. The reference values of each lab varies. A clinical correlation is also important. In those individuals who have positive HbeAg results there are higher rates of viral transmission. The appearance of anti-HBe in serum is called seroconversion and is associated with a lower level of HBV DNA or a low replicating state of the virus. It also indicates clinical improvement and can help predict long-term clearance of the virus. Detection of HBe antibody can also be used to monitor response to treatment and possible remission of the disease. A positive anti-HBs test result indicates that a person has successfully responded to the hepatitis B vaccine or has recovered from an acute hepatitis B infection. Kindly consult your attending doctor for your normal reference values. I hope it helped.
Best luck and regards!
