Hep B Core Total Reflex To Hbc Igm
Hb core ab-igm non reactive hepatitis b core ab total reactive and hep b surface antigen non reactive what does this mean?
Hepatitis b is a viral liver disease. Until vaccines were developed this was a very common cause of hepatitis, and still is in some countries. Hep b is a progressive chronic disease which can lead to cirrhosis and also to cancer of the liver. It is also implicated in the causation ...Read more
Hep B: Hep B core IgM antibody is only present in acute infection. The IgM will then be lost, and you develop Heb B core antibody total (IgG) that persists for life. After acute infection, one hopefully loses the surface antigen and develops surface antibody, which indicates lifelong immunity. The surface antibody also persists for life. If persisting surface antigen, this indicates chronic infection. ...Read more

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
HBsAg-, anti HBc IgM+,IgG- and anti HBs Ag-. Should you still get hepatitis B vaccine? No immunity, but new infection, not infectious.

Interpret hepatitis B panel results:
Hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) - Non-reactive, Hep B core Total antibody Anti-HBc Reactive, NAT Non-reactive?
No cure: It's uncommon to be completely cured of hepatitis b. One achievable goal is to go from having a positive hbeag to a positive hbeab ("e antigen" to "e antibody" conversion) with treatment, which means your virus is less active and less infectious. A small number of people convert from hbsag to hbsab ("surface antigen" conversion), which is about as close as you get to a cure. ...Read more
