Hepa B Non Reactive And Hiv Test
Check for immunity: Hbsag (surface antigen) tests for active hepatitis. If it's negative, you don't have it and don't need retesting unless you get exposed. However, you should get a hbsab (surface antibody) to see if you're immune. If the antibody is negative, you should be vaccinated, and then you'll never need to worry about getting hepatitis b. ...Read more
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
Can hepatitis b vaccine taken when sgot and sgpt values are high and test for hep b non reactive ?
Yes: The vaccine does not affect the liver. It involves the immune system which produces antibodies to protect against hep b and prevent further damage to the liver. ...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
hepatitis Be Ab non-reactive
Hepatitis Be Ag: negative
Hepatitis Bs Ag: non reactive
Quantitative HBV PCR : detected
What it means?
See below: 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, from what you provided, you could have an early stage infection with hepatitis B. More than 80% of the people recover from the infection on their own. Discuss it with the doctor who ordered the test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hb core ab-igm non reactive hepatitis b core ab total reactive and hep b surface antigen non reactive what does this mean?
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
It's complex.: The CMIA test checks for hepatitis B surface antigen, just one of the items necessary to confirm and classify a hepatitis B infection. Without the other results, it's not possible to be sure. If you're concerned, bring your complete hep profile to your doctor, who can determine with a physical exam and your results if you're likely to have hepatitis B. Good luck. ...Read more
Yes, but you may: Need vaccination. Lack of hep b surface antigen means that there is no active infection. But you may be susceptible to infection and if you are not immune, you should get vaccinated. See this site for explanation of hepatitis b testing. http://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/hbv/pdfs/serologicchartv8.pdf. ...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?
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
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
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.
Hepatitis Be Ab :non- reactive
Hepatitis Be Ag:reactive
Hepatitis Bs Ag:non - reactive
Quantitative HBV PCR:not detected what it means?
Is it required to get both a hep b surface antigen and hep b surface antibody test for a hep b titer?
Ag looks for virus: Unless checking to see if recently exposed, the hbsab is what the body makes in response to seeing the outer surface (/shell) of the hep b virus, so they can attack if ever see the virus. Should only need the ab test for titer / to confirm vaccine "take.". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is HIV Pooled RNA together with HIV antibody test and HEP C pooled RNA together with Hep C antibody test at 93 days of a Lancet prick conclusive? Thx
Yes: Pooling makes no difference in these tests. Negative results at 3 months are conclusive. ...Read more
I had blood tests done and my hepatitis b surface antibody QL reactive, hepatitis b surface antigen non-reactive, what does it mean?
Need entire panel.: You're best off using HealthTap Prime to answer your question. You can upload the entire lab report & discuss with a doctor. So far, test shows you have antibodies but no antigen: means either you're in the "window period" after exposure when the virus goes "underground" or you were given a vaccine which made you immune to hepatitis B. We need the pre-core "e" test. Use HealthTap Prime to disucss. ...Read more
There are several ways to detect the HIV virus. The first is by antibodies. This includes eia (enzyme immuno assay). The rapid HIV tests are these types. The second way detects proteins on the viral coat (western blot). This is a gel plate electrophoresis. Thirdly there is pcr (polymerase chain reaction). This detects and amplifies dna allowing a viral ...Read more
