Hep B Surface Antibody Reactive
Hep b surface antibody result :borderline range non-reactive verified by analysis what's this mean? Dr say wrong test vaccinated probably childhood
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have been helpful to have all the results, e.g., Antibody to Hep B core? If that was negative, your doctor is likely to be correct. See this site for info.

What does this mean: Hep B Surface Antibody Borderline, Hep B Surface Antigen non-reactive, Hep B Core AB non-reactive? All other labs normal.
Had 2 of 3 Hep B vaccine shots. HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIBODY QL is NON-REACTIVE. 3rd shot in June. Am I protected at all until final shot?
Immune System: The Immune System is quite mysterious — it has layers and layers to it actually. One 'crude' way of measuring part of this immunity is through antibody testing. That only measures one branch of the whole thing, however. With Hep B vaccine especially, there is often good T-cell immunity generated, which is NOT routinely measured. You're not quite done with the series, so I would measure afterwards. ...Read more

Is it required to get both a hep b surface antigen and hep b surface antibody test for a hep b titer?
My hep b surface antigen is positive but conformation test is negative, also all other test hsbc antibody and core negative, is it a false report?
Hi, please help, hepb surface antigen positive, hep b surface antigen confirmatory negative, antibody negative and anti core negative. What does it mean?
Hepatitis B testing: You should have it rechecked. Hbsag or surface antigen tests are the same, not like in HIV which has screening and confirmatory test. Normally, in the window period after an acute infection, all test for surface antigen or its antibodies are negative except for antibody to core antigen. Hbsag or surface antigen appears right after infection or exposure and disappears in recovery. ...Read more
When getting a hep b titer is it part of the procedure to get both a surface antibody and surface antigen test? What are they and what's difference?
Yes: Surface antigen tests for proteins present on the surface of the virus in your blood. Surface antibody tests to see if there are antibodies in your system produced by your white cells against the protein of hepatitis b virus. If a person has received hepatitis b vaccine, the surface antibody is positive and the antigen test is negative. If both tests are positive, it indicates a true infection. ...Read more

At any rate could be something temporary, and vaccine non responders are not uncommon, the low T and B lymphocytes can be just part of low lymphocytes altogether for several reasons most are reversible, infectious disease consultant may seek an Immunologist input, goodluck ...Read more

Hep b antibody 66QN how likely would I catch the disease I got 3shots when I was baby exposure kissing?
No record of Vac Hep B from2006(I know had 3 shots) GP wanted start a fresh,Jab in Nov2015 could this distort result for Antibody Test today>1000?
Boosting Hep B: If you had the primary series (3 shots) of Hepatitis B vaccine, and then you had an additional shot sometime later — this will 'boost' your immunity. The Hep B series is extremely good (immunogenic), so I suspect this booster shot revved things up and your immune system is now super charged. A lot of that shot administration is for record keeping/schools etc. A titre is helpful to 'prove' immunity ...Read more
Hi my hsbag positive, confirmatory test negative for hep b, also antibody and anticore negative. I did blood test 2 times, same results. Dr said its weird.
Hepatitis B: Not sure what the so-called confirmatory test was, but as a general rule having hepatitis b surface antigen means that you have the disease. You may be in the early window period before the development of antibodies, although anticore antibody usually happens early in the course of the disease and is confirmatory. You might go ahead and take the vaccine and see if the hepb ab becomes positive. ...Read more

Hep B: Yes. If you had the 3 shot series of hep b in 2006 You should still have antibodies so you can check the blood test for hep b antibodies. If it is low you still could be immune with an amnestic response, meaning levels are low but when exposed you rev right up, when in contact with hep b. It is the best though not to rely on the amnestic response,but get a booster shot. if levels low ...Read more

Yes: Antibodies against hepatitis b virus (hbsab antibodies from being vaccinated) are transferred from mother to fetus through the placenta. Babies get vaccinated during their first month of life and begin making their own antibodies, which is very important because the antibodies they got from mom only last about 6 months. ...Read more
I only french kissed my Gf she has hep b but I got 3 shots long time ago and I checked my titer the result was antibody 66IU/ML am i at risk?
Not for Hep B:
You are not at risk for Hep B. But Hep B is not the only infection transmitted through body fluids.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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.
