Anti Hcv Reactive
What to do if I have a test and it showed hbeag negative while hbeab positives and my anti-hcv non reactive. What does that?
Good news on labs: If your Hep Be antigen (Ag) is negative, that means you don't have hepatitis B virus there in your body. That's great! The Hep B antibody (Ab) means that at sometime in the past you DID have it, but it probably cleared. I would ask for a Hep B virus DNA test to be absolutely sure (HBV DNA). The anti-HCV test means you don't have Hepatitis C, which is another good thing. ...Read more
What should I do if I have a test and it showed hbeag negative while hbeab positives and my anti-hcv non reactive. What does that?
HBsAg?: I'm assuming you have a positive hbsag, since the hbeag and hbeab wouldn't be ordered otherwise. If that's the case, you have chronic hepatitis b, though it's good that your hbeab is positive. You may require treatment. But the most important test is hbsag. Find out whether it's positive. ...Read more
What should mean when anti-hcv non-reactive 0.15 cutoff value 1.0 and hbsag non- reactive 0.16 cutoff value 1.0 please let me know?
She has hepatitis c: Anti-hcv is a test for antibodies to the hepatitis c virus. A positive test means that a person has been exposed to hepatitis c. In most cases, the virus persists in the body and over time can cause cirrhosis and liver cancer. The way to see if a person has active hepatitis c is to measure the hcv-rna level- the actual genetic material of the virus. ...Read more
What these results show? Wbc = 11.2, ESR = 60 and HBsAG = 0.637 non reactive, anti HCV = 45.7 reactive

My lab results shows that my anti hav is reactive, anti HCV is non reactive and my anti hbc total is reactive. Hbsag non reactive. What this means?
Good news: You had hepatitis a in the past. You only get this hepatitis once so you are immune. You were also likely exposed to hepatitis b but your immune system has controlled it and you don't have chronic infection. You have never been exposed to hepatitis c. This is most likely explanation. Continue to protect against hcv, hiv, and other stds. ...Read more
Hi please explain my following tests: anti HCV ab - result=non - reactive hbs ag (chemiluminescence) - result - negative?
Looks negative: Looks negative for hep c and hep b. ...Read more
Anti HCV ab - result non - reactive hbs ag (chemiluminescence) - result - negative please advise on my results. Thanks very much?
No infection: These results are most consistent with never being exposed to hepatitis c, and not having chronic infection with hepatitis b. It can take several months for hcv antibody to be detected, so if you had a recent high risk exposure this should be repeated at six months. If hepatitis b surface antibody is not present, then consider hbv vaccination for future protection (there is no vaccine for hcv). ...Read more
If my results says anti-hcv - he c antibody reactive [non-reacti] finale what exactly does that mean?
Hepatitis C: A repeatedly reactive hepatitis C antibody test means that you either have a current hepatitis C infection or a past infection that has resolved, or possibly a false positive test. You need more detailed testing to sort this out. There are effective treatments for hepatitis C now. It is a serious disease if left untreated. Do not ignore this. See your doctor for further testing. Good luck. ...Read more
Hi just wanna ask what this mean I have my hepa profile hbsag-2431.0 reactive, anti-hbs 0.1 non reactive, anti-hcv 0.153 non reactive?
I had the tests done because of a mild fatty liver. Plz interpret my results: anti HCV ab test = non- reactive & HBsAG (chimiluminescence)= negative?
I had the tests done because of a mild fatty liver. Plz interpret my results: anti HCV ab test : non- reactive? Hbsag (chimiluminescence): negative?
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
A lab test for an antibody evaluates if a person had been exposed to a particular infection.
If an antibody test (to hepatitis c, in this case) is nonreactive, it implies that the person did not have or had the virus that causes hepatitis c because the body's immune system did not generate a response to fight this infection.
A normal immune system and enough time to make antibodies is needed. ...Read more

My wife did blood test for anti hcv and result show 2.511 reactive what this mean? Is it confirm she have hep C?
Needs confirmation: Antibodies to HCV can mean the patient has been exposed and cleared, or chronically infected. The best thing is to have the antibody test repeated using a more sensitive HCV RIBA and add to that a quantitative test for HCV, to measure the actual amount of virus present (HCV RNA). Depending on the findings, additional testing and treatment may be warranted. ...Read more
Got my blood test my sgot/alt is 47 and ats/sgot is 34 and Anti-HCV (EIA/MEIA method) is reactive. What does mean should I be concerned?
Check HCV RNA: You may have chronic hepatitis C virus. It is estimated that 80% of patients infected acutely with HCV will become chronic carriers. The early tests detect antibody to HCV, but do not tell if you are immune or chronically infected. You need to get a viral detection test, the HCV RNA test. The ALT and AST are not really abnormal, but this is not unusual in patients with chronic HCV. ...Read more
Don't have hep C now: If you meant the hcv RNA test was negative (and it was a good quality one), then the 1st positive anti-hep c ab test means one of two things: it was a false positive or you were infected at one piint in time and then was able to clear the infection on your own. ...Read more
Confirm hep c: A positive antihep c test could mean you have hepatitis C or could be a false positive. Pcr testing would confirm whether one really has the virus. If the PCR is positive, one has hepaititis c. If the PCR is negative and has no hep c risk factors then the antihcv test was likely a false positive. ...Read more

My results for s-anti HCV was active with 43.93-45.38. What does that number mean? Please help. Thank you
May have hep C: This means that you have a large amount of antibody to the hpatitis c virus. The next step is lab testing to see if you have the active virus in the blood, and then the family of the virus (genotype). This needs further evaluation-now that may tell you the virus is cleared or you made need treatment (which is now effective). ...Read more
2 inconclusive anti-hcv results (last year sept to oct)and 2 negative ones (last nov and this year may), another inconclusive (last week).do I have it?
Duplicate question: See my other reply. Based on the information provided there, you aren't at risk and don't need testing. Anyway, inconclusive screening tests almost always turn out to be negative, so on that basis plus no risk, you don't need further testing. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
