What does the titer result for hepatitis b surface ab test mean?

Marker of immunity

Hepatitis_b
Surface Ab is either a response to Hep B infection or to injection of Hep B vaccine. The titer indicates how much antibody is present in the blood. This level varies with time during the course of infection or following an injection.

Hepatitis b vaccination given but titer does not show immunity. What's this mean?

Need revaccination

Hepatitis_b
The most common reason is improper interval vaccination. But some may not develop immunity and so repeat course is recommended.

I checked my hepatitis b titer ,it is 800 so do i need to take still hepatitis vaccine?

More info needed

Hepatitis_b
If you have not had any HBV vaccine and your anti-HBs antibody is positive, you've had the infection (and the anti-HBc antibody is positive too). No vaccine needed. If you are in the midst of a 3 dose HBV vaccine series and your anti-HBs is now positive, finish the series. It will provide better protection.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

The length of time between my Hepatitis B series was greater than when each were supposed to be taken (Now need titer).Were all shots still effective?

Probably effective

Injection
If one is doing a blood titer test, the result will decide if she is immune or not immune. The shot schedule in the past won't matter anymore. Everybody with close or frequent contact with a Hep B carrier (especially healthcare workers) should have their titers tested. Some people who get the shots at exactly the recommended time can still have very low titers, and need additional booster shots.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

I have to get a Hepatitis B titer because the time frame of my Hep B series. What does the titer procedure consist of? Also, should my results be okay

Lots of people...

Labtech
Lots of people get their Hep B titers done. It is a simple blood test (just like getting a cholesterol test). The advantage of getting the titer done is that the titer will indicate whether or not booster vaccinations are needed now. If the titer is too low, booster shots are usually needed, regardless of the timing of the shots in the past.

Hepatitis b surface antigen non-reactive means what?

No active infection

Hepatitis_b
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.

If hepatitis B e antigen, serum is non reactive, what does it mean?

Depends

Hepatitis_b
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.

How did it happened to have a hepatitis b postive non reactive result?

Please ask again

Hepatitis_b
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.

What does a test result showing Hepatitis B surface Antigen Negative non Reactive mean?

No hep b

Antigen
Hepatitis B surface antigen is present during an active infection with hepatitis B. When it is negative, it means that there is no hepatitis B virus particles in your bloodstream. It could mean you have never had hepatitis B, or you no longer have hepatitis B.
