A reactive HBsAb test result means that the person is infected with the hepatitis B virus, which can be an acute or a chronic infection. An infected person can pass the virus on to others through their blood and infected bodily fluids. Anti-HBs non-reactive means not having antibody for HB and there is a need for vaccination. HBeAg is used to indicate the ability to spread the virus to other people and treatment will usually eliminate HBeAg from the blood and lead to development of antibodies against e-antigen (anti-HBe). A positive anti-HBc IgG may indicate past hepatitis B infection, false-positive reaction, or a possible current latent infection. It is important to correlate the test results with clinical findings. Discuss the test results with your doctor.
Best wishes and regards!
