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
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
Interpret hepatitis B panel results:
Hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) - Non-reactive, Hep B core Total antibody Anti-HBc Reactive, NAT Non-reactive?
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

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.
Test result was "Hepatitis Surface Antibody - Nonreactive" and "Hepatitis B Surface Antigen - Reactive", "HBS AG Confirmation - Nonconfirm".
Hepb surface antigen positive, confirmatory test negative, antibody and core negative, should I worry?
Possibly: Do not understand how initial test was positive and "confirmatory" test negative. Need to repeat these, although you may be in the "window" period, when antigen is being consumed by forming antibody and neither is measurable. Wait 3 months and retest antibody titers. By then you may be hepb antibody and core antibody positive, in which case you are immune. ...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
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 depends: In a situation like this you have one positive test and one negative test. The lab should run a tie-breaker test (HIV RNA) to give you a real answer. Also, the first test may be an older test 2nd or 3rd generation) instead of the latest 4th generation) test. It also depends on if you have flu-Like symptoms.
