Is Abbott Architect(cmia method) hepatitis c antibody test more accurate than Siemens Advia Centaur hepatatis c antibody test method?
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
Interpret hepatitis B panel results:
Hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) - Non-reactive, Hep B core Total antibody Anti-HBc Reactive, NAT Non-reactive?
Hepatitis c (HCV) antibody is reactive. The hepatitis C Recombinant Immunoblat Assay(riba) confirmation test is non reactive.Is antibody false positiv
Well : A positive hepatitis C antibody test with a negative or in a test usually is not a false positive that usually means someone had hepatitis C infection and their body cleared the infection and they are now immune to hepatitis C. Do a Healthtap visit or see a primary care physician for specific diagnosis ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
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
Hep B Virus (HBV) DNA Qualitative (Detection) - COBAS TaqMan , Hep C RNA Detection by Taqman detection will be conclusive on 47 days? Any retest need?
No: Both Hepatitis B and C viruses may be detected 30 to 60 days after infection by antigen detection or 60-120 days with antibody testing. Direct HBV DNA and HCV RNA testing can potentially detect infection earlier, within 2-4 weeks after infection, so being tested at 47 days post-exposure with a negative nucleic acid test for both is very likely to be a true negative ...Read more

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?
Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Hiv RNA qualitative test negative; but absolute CD4 helper-879;% CD4 pos. Lymph-31.4;abs.Cd8 suppressor-1204;% cd8 pos lymph-43.0;cd4:cd8 ratio-0.73?
I wouldn't worry: Cd4 normally runs around 500-1000. Cd8 usually runs 150-1000 or so, but these ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. I'm not worried; you can repeat the RNA if you mistrust the lab. In healthy folks, the values vary chaotically. I had burning mouth for weeks after coxsackie herpangina and a viral infection may have through your cells out of kilter briefly. ...Read more
