thanks anyone can help me plz...
my lab test 2008
Cut off value Patient ct Results
HbsAg 1.000 3.5000 reactive
HbeAg 0.056 0.029 non reactive
AntiHBe 1.457 0.023 non reactive
AntiHBcIgG 0.385 0.031 reactive
HNsAag 0.090 0.537 reactive
AntiHbs 0.695 0.321 non reactive
I'm trying to understand this format that people present. For example, I see positive nonzero numbers in the antibody columns. Are these people actually producing antibodies, just not enough? So wouldn't a booster help?
those tests are not quantitative, they dont reflect real antigens and antibodies quantity but only reagents to be positive or neg
there are also quantitative tests in updated labs but only hbsag can be useful, it reflects the number of infected cells and if decreasing to less than 1000-1500 iu/ml immune clearance.hbeag and hbeab, hbcab are almost useless even quantitative
