Coexistence of hbsag and anti hbs?

Coexistence of hbsag and anti hbs?

It's possible.: When HBsAg and HBsAb are detected simultaneously, the first thing to do is to recheck the labs to be sure it is not in error. If it is confirmed, it is a rare instance of a mutation in the HBsAg region, and there is not good data about the response to conventional therapies. Be sure you were seeing an experienced hepatologist if this is present. Good luck. ...Read more

Hbsag non reactive but should I recheck for hepa b test?

Check for immunity: Hbsag (surface antigen) tests for active hepatitis. If it's negative, you don't have it and don't need retesting unless you get exposed. However, you should get a hbsab (surface antibody) to see if you're immune. If the antibody is negative, you should be vaccinated, and then you'll never need to worry about getting hepatitis b. ...Read more

Hello Dr., I am a final year medical student and I recently got to know that I am HBsAg positive.

Interesting...: Med students, nursing students, dental students all need their serologies (blood tests) done before starting their schooling. If HBsAb is negative, vaccines are given to prevent them from catching HepB. If HBsAg is positive (person has HepB virus), more blood tests are done to see what the person's true status is. If truly infected, then treatment is available. Enjoy the last year of med school! ...Read more

Get care from an expert at your med school; further testing can sort out the details of your options. ...Read more
