Hepatitis B Core Ab Total Reactive
Hb core ab-igm non reactive hepatitis b core ab total reactive and hep b surface antigen non reactive what does this mean?
Exposure / Vaccine: Hard to say without knowing the rest of the hep b panel. It either means you've been exposed to HBV or have been vaccinated. ...Read more
You're protected!: Hepatitis b surface antigen means you have active virus. If your surface antigen is negative, and your surface antibody is positive, then (except in very rare circumstances) you are not infected and your antibody protection is complete. Hepatitis b surface antibody is acquired either following vaccination, or after you have cleared a past infection. ...Read more
Hello good afternoon, im reading my results and it says hepatitis b surface ab ql reactive, what does that mean?
Nothing: If you have a positive test for hepatitis b antibodies, it means you have been exposed to the virus and had an immune reaction to it; or, you were vaccinated, and have an immune reaction to the viral components in the vaccine. It does not mean you are infected with the virus; that would require a positive hepatitis b antigen test. ...Read more
Please ask again: It makes no sense what you wrote. There is usually on the test results the results and then what the test would be if one did not have the situation or infection. If you are reading your lab reports and it says first hepatitis b positive. Then that means you are either immune to this infection because of vaccination or have had the infection. There has to be more information than that though. ...Read more
Hi, I have reactive hepatitis b and I want to proceed on medical course, do I have still chance to go on studying medicine?
There is always: A chance and hope. Start your medical studies once the viral load is low and your immune system is strong and stable. Follow your doctor's advice. Sensible advice is to avoid taking tylenol (acetaminophen) and drinking alcohol.Eat nutritious foods, more fruits and veggies. Take care and god bless u! http://www. Ghanaweb.

My english is not good but before you even try to explain my problem. My child test report hepatitis b result in following remarks - non-reactive?
That's good: That means he/she doesn't have hepatitis.Get a more detailed answer ›
Hi I have a reactive hepatitis b and the result was 7134 ECLIA method. What does it mean by 7134 and what is the substandard of the value? Is it 7134
Yes and no: It's possible to convert from e antigen (hbeag) to e antibody (hbeab) with treatment of hepatitis b. This is a good thing, as it means your hepatitis is less active and you are less infectious to others. However, hepatitis b itself is not considered to be 'curable, ' and conversions from surface antigen (hbsag) to surface antibody (hbsab) rarely happen. ...Read more
No active infection: When people have reactive hepatitis b surface antigen, they have proteins from hepatitis b in their blood. These people have active infection and may need treatment. If there is no reactive hbsag, then most likely there is no active infection. Rarely, people who have hepatitis b core antibody detected, but no hepatitis b surface antibody, can have chronic active infection. ...Read more
It is uncommon: You need to better understand your problem. Do you have Hepatitis-B infection? Find out.... and also find out if you have chronic hepatitis or cirrhosis. cancer is the last thing that can happen if your liver is badly damaged/scarred (also called cirrhosis). Go to a hepatologist to get good monitoring, if needed. ...Read more
Yes: It is possible though the clinical consequences of the change is not entirely clear. One may still harbor immunity. ...Read more
Not beneficial: Too late to get benefit through vaccination. ...Read more
I would want to know the following information:
are they hepatitis b surface antigen reactive?
Are they hepatitis b e antibody reactive?
Did this person likely get hepatitis b as a baby or small child or when they were older?
What is the hepatitis b dna (viral load) level?
What is the alt (liver enzyme) value?
In isolation this lab value can mean multiple things. ...Read more
In many laboratories:
A "borderline nonreactive" result is reported as "indeterminate." A positive result is an antibody titer
>12 mIU/mL; this means the individual is immune to hepatitis B. A negative result is <5.0. The CDC defines a fairly large range of indeterminate: > 5.0 but < 12.0. Indeterminate means "unable to determine immune status." Most would advise (re)immunization in this case. Stay well:) ...Read more
It depends: It depend specifically on what test is reactive. There are a dozen different kind of tests and your question is impossible to answer since you did not share exactly what test is positive. Reactive could mean immunity from vaccination to immunity from prior exposure to active disease. ...Read more
Is it possible for the hepatitis b surface antibody to decrease over time from reactive to non-reactive?
Yes: Yes, that can happen, in which case you might need additional vaccination. Once positive, I generally recheck the hbsab every 5-10 years. ...Read more
If you are hepatitis b reactive, and then you are test again for HBsAG and the result is non reactive what does it mean? You don't have hbv?
Reactive to what?: Hbv markers are used to distinguish actively infected from immunity, the latter include antibody to surface antigen (hbsab) and to the core antigen (hbcab). Some tests detect part of the virus, such as surface antigen (hbsag), the core antigen, or hbv dna. The presence of hbsag indicates that the person is potentially infectious. Hbsab replaces hbsag as the hbv infection evolves to immunity. ...Read more
Having Hep B surface antibody indicates Immunity to Hep B, either through past infection or through immunization. If through past infection, you will also have the core antibody. If through immunization, then no core antibody seen.
Having surface antibdy is what we want to see - it's a good thing! ...Read more
What does it mean if "HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIBODY QL" is "borderline" but "HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGEN" is "non-reactive"?
Uncertain.: Without the rest of your lab values, it is difficult to know for sure. These value suggest that you may have been exposed or vaccinated for hepatitis B in the past, but again we're working with incomplete information. You may speak with your physician who ordered the tests or call us at HealthTap Prime if you have the rest of the results. Good luck. ...Read more
Non Reactive: Inconsistent with immunity, less than 10 mIU/mL. Hepatitis B Surface Antibody. Does this mean I don't have Hepatitis B as well?
You don't most likel:
There can be a problem with the test if the antibody has not developed (takes up to a month) or if the viral proteins are so much that it sucks up all the antibody. Gnerally both the viral protein and antibody levels are measured at the same time.
but seems negative. ...Read more
What is mean by HBsAg : Non-Reactive and Anti-HBs : 49 mIU/mL Should I take IM hepatitis B booster?
No booster needed: That lab result shows your past hep B vaccination worked and your are immune. You don't need a booster. ...Read more
Test result was "Hepatitis Surface Antibody - Nonreactive" and "Hepatitis B Surface Antigen - Reactive", "HBS AG Confirmation - Nonconfirm".
