Advia hep.C antibody +, HCV RNA -. 3 months later Architect hep C Ab -, HCV RNA -. 2 Hep C Ab Verification tests -.Is Advia hepC Ab test false positiv

Without more info: and only the data you submitted in your question, I would put it together the way you did: the first Advia hepC Ab test was a false positive. I presume other experts who arranged your follow-up testing have suggested the same interpretation. Stay well:) ...Read more

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Do I have HBV?

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative.  Do I have HBV?

Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus. If her Hep B virus PCR is negative, that means the lab does not find the virus's DNA (genes). If the core antibody is reactive that means her immune system REMEMBERS being infected with Hep B. She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more

05/05/2016 Siemens Advia Centaur hep C antibody result positive.08/10/2016 Abbott Architect (cmia) hep C antibody result negative.Who is telling truth?

It's not really: a question of truth telling. No test is perfect: the proteins and reactants used in each test will respond to an individual's blood/biologic material, potentially, in a different way. Falsely positive or falsely negative results are not very unusual. You need to decide on a confirmatory strategy with your doctor. Retesting is necessary and an expert can help you weigh the evidence to decide result ...Read more

My hepb serology hbasg +ve, confirmatory test hbsag-ve, hbcab, hbsab, hbeag, hbeab are all -ve, this is 3rd tym same result, am I infected?

My hepb serology hbasg +ve, confirmatory test hbsag-ve, hbcab, hbsab, hbeag, hbeab are all -ve, this is 3rd tym same result, am I infected?

My vote is...: No, based on the confirmatory results that antigens and antibodies are negative. As the surface antibody (HBsAb) is currently negative, one can ask his primary care for Hepatitis B vaccines, to acquire protection. However, if one was exposed recently, and got a new infection, he could be in the brief window period, if the HBcAb test was for IgG only (thus missing HBcAb IgM). His Dr. can explain. ...Read more

Please interpret my hepatitis b profile result: thanks
HBsAg - reactive
ANTI HBs- non-reactive
ANTI HAV IgM- non-reactive
HBeAg- non-reactive
ANTI HBe?

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

My brother recently tested positive for HBSAG. His HBV DNA is50000 iu/ml.IgM anti Hbc is REACTIVE.Hbe ag neg and hbe ab positive. Is it acute/chronic?

Recent infection: Positive HbSAg and IgM anti HbC suggest recent infection, but that does not mean it would not become chronic. Your brother needs to be monitored by a physician for proper treatment. ...Read more

Hep c ab positive. Pcr non reactive. Am i contagious?

Get tested: There is a blood test to diagnose infection with hepatitis C. Nothing in the results you provided, indicates active Hep C infection, however, Hep C can remain asymptomatic for years. If you have any concern get tested for Hep c. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Hiv RNA qualitative test negative; but absolute CD4 helper-879;% CD4 pos. Lymph-31.4;abs.Cd8 suppressor-1204;% cd8 pos lymph-43.0;cd4:cd8 ratio-0.73?

Hiv RNA qualitative test negative; but absolute CD4 helper-879;% CD4 pos. Lymph-31.4;abs.Cd8 suppressor-1204;% cd8 pos lymph-43.0;cd4:cd8 ratio-0.73?

I wouldn't worry: Cd4 normally runs around 500-1000. Cd8 usually runs 150-1000 or so, but these ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. I'm not worried; you can repeat the RNA if you mistrust the lab. In healthy folks, the values vary chaotically. I had burning mouth for weeks after coxsackie herpangina and a viral infection may have through your cells out of kilter briefly. ...Read more

Test result was "Hepatitis Surface Antibody - Nonreactive" and "Hepatitis B Surface Antigen  - Reactive", "HBS AG Confirmation - Nonconfirm".

Hmmmm: Got me beat. A reactive Hep B antigen indicates that you have Hepatitis B. However, It looks like the test was NOT confirmed. My experience with labs is that their report format could use some improvement and you may be misreading this. Talk to the doc who ordered the test. ...Read more
