Anti Dnase B
Azd 6244- mek inhibitor- a selective mitogen-activated protein kinase (mek) inhibitor. Mk 2206- akt inhibitor. Why prescription for me? It ? Nsclc/mets
Molecular targeting: These agents are designed to selectively knock out key pathways your tumor may use to grow. Presumably you already had your tumor tested for these different mutations. Ask the doctor offering these options to explain their rationale. These are investigational studies and many of the treatment costs may be covered-ask. ...Read more
My HBV DNA IS 500 iu/ml, HBE AG NEG, ANTI HBE AG POSITIVE, ALT IS 57, ? Can i start using Interferon???
Given what you..: Have written, the presence of hbsag without hbeag or anti-hbc igm suggests a chronic infection, probably for years. People who are anti-hbe positive tend to be much less infectious as compared to their hbeag counterparts with less inflammatory liver disease. Was a hbv dna viral load done? ...Read more
Elevated: Hi. In the labs I know, those levels would be above normal, indicating an autoimmune process in the thyroid. They do not imply anything about thyroid function, and can be seen elevated in hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and with normal thyroid function. If your thyroid function is abnormal, those antibodies would imply an autoimmune etiology. ...Read more
Yes: IV antibiotics are more potent than po antibiotics and almost all of them have the potential of disrupting the normal intestinal flora. ...Read more
Hbv DNA is 13160iu/ml. Hepatitis b surface antigen negative. Chronic hepatitis b take tenofo b for 3 month? hepatologist answer me. tell my condition?
Your condition: Needs more information and test to determine the stage of your chronic active hepatitus B. Viral load do not correlate with the stage of liver damage or fibrosis ...Read more

Do I have hep b or c?Here's result!thanks!
anti hbs (cmia) 48.35 miu/ml - reactive
anti HCV (eclia) 0.08 non-reactive HBsAG - non reactive
Hi Doctor, I did blood testing of Liver. the result are Anitibody anti HBe or Aniticorp anti HBe : Reaction Positive & Antigene HBe Reaction Negative.
Hepatitis B tests: An antibody means that your body reacted to something and tried to fight it off. That's your immune system doing what it's supposed to. An antigen is something like a piece of virus that shouldn't be there. Your test report shows you were exposed to Hepatitis B but luckily your body fought it off. This HepBe test helps prove if you developed immunity from natural infection or from the vaccine. ...Read more
Pos or neg HBeAb: If you have chronic hepatitis b, a goal of therapy is to convert from a hepatitis b e antigen (hbeag) to a e antibody (hbeab)', which means your infection is less active and which makes you less likely to transmit the virus to someone else. With antibody tests, "reactive" is positive and "non-reactive" is negative. A reactive hbeab is desirable. ...Read more
Please interpret my hepatitis b profile result: thanks
HBsAg - reactive
ANTI HBs- non-reactive
ANTI HAV IgM- non-reactive
Hep B testing: You need to have your doctor repeat the testing for confirmation because as it stands right now, you are currently positive for Hepatitis B although it does not show you as infectious to others. Nevertheless, these are rudimentary labs that need to be addressed by your primary doctor for further clarification. ...Read more
HBV test results: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Need any medication or vaccine?
Excellent question: and your story stumps many a doctor, often! :) a lot of the recommendations depend on - are you someone with risk factors for HBV? is this the first time that it has been checked? are your liver enzymes normal? are you about to undergo any procedures/ treatments that could put you at risk for HBV? If you have no sig risk factors, yes, I'd vaccinate you if there's potential for exposure. ...Read more
hepatitis b surface antigen reactive and hepatitis b surface antibody nonreactive and core antibody total reactive and HBV DNA detected sir plz reply?
You carry hep B: I am assuming you feel well and this was a surprise finding. There are millions of people like yourself. You will require lifelong health care for it unless / until a means of eradicating it is found. You pose no danger to a partner who is immunized. ...Read more
Is this a lab error for Hepatitis B?: HBsAg(-), HBsAe(+), AntiHBc(+), AntiHBc IgM(-), AntiHBc IgG(-), AntiHBs(-). Repeated 3 more times with all (-)
False positive tests: With negative results on three more tests, almost certainly the positive results were false. This isn't necessarily a lab error, just a glitch in the biology of the test. That is, there probably is nothing the lab could have done to either cause or prevent it. In any case, you don't have hepatitis B. If potentially at risk, e.g. sexually active and not monogamous, get vaccinated. ...Read more
Please explain HBsAg reactive, Anti-HBs nonreactive only 3.100 mlU/ML, Anti HBe nonreactive, HBe Ag reactive, sgpt(alt) 53 U/L. thank you?
This is serious : Your personal physician will explain. That is really all that I think I should say. ...Read more
My brother is hbe ag neg and antibody hbe ag positive. His viral load is 50000iu/ml. Alt is 33. U/s noramal. GE prescribed Entecavir 0.5mg.is it good?
Probable resistance: Entecavir is a nucleoside analog and has potent antiviral activity against hepatitis B virus (HBV) - the emergence of drug resistance is rare. If indeed his HBV viral load is 50,000 (I would repeat), then he has probably developed a mutation. The addition of adefovir may result in suppression, but only in about half of patients. Tenofovir may be warranted. See a hematologist for advice ...Read more
