Doctor insights on:
Antigens are...: An antigen is any substance that causes your immune system to produce antibodies against it. It may be a foreign substance from the environment such as bacteria, viruses, pollen or chemicals. An antigen may also be formed within the body, as with bacterial toxins. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Hiv 1/2 blood analysis:
-antibodies and p24 antigen (chemiluminescence): reactive-2, 741
- IgG antibodies (enzyme immunoassay):nonreactive
in this case, is HIV infection accurate?
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
Is a core positive antibody for hepetitis b is dangerous. Igm antibody negetive. Surface antigen negetive with surface antibody positive. Explain?
Yes: Enterobacter aerogenes is a bacteria that can cause a variety of infections such as urinary tract infections, sepsis, pneumonia, skin/wound infections. It typically does not occur in people who are otherwise healthy. It can be picked up by patients who are hospitalized, particularly in an intensive care unit. It can be picked up from contaminated surfaces. Antibiotic resistance can be a problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Surface factors: DCs process and present antigen to activate both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. Only DCs are capable of activating naïve T cells. Immature DCs lay dormant waiting to interact with foreign antigen. Once the antigen is captured, it is processed either by exogenous, endosomal or a proteosomal pathway. Antigen is taken up by phagocytosis or receptor mediated endocytosis into the cytosol. The antigen is further degraded in the cytosol via proteosome and enters the endoplasmic reticulum where peptides bind to newly synthesized MHC class I molecules for presentation on the cell surface. Here costimulatory molecules including members of the B7 family,and TNF family are present which are critical to the activation of T cells. ...Read more
Is LABCORP "Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Antibody Verification" test used as was used riba test for ruling out/in false positive hep C HCV antibody results?
Interpret hepatitis B panel results:
Hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) - Non-reactive, Hep B core Total antibody Anti-HBc Reactive, NAT Non-reactive?
H. pylori infection: .. which causes gastritis with symptoms of early satiety, abdominal pain, heartburn. If you are symptomatic, then you will need the treatment. If you are not symptomatic or have responded to treatment already, then your test result indicates ongoing antibody production (normal immune response to previous infection) and no treatment is required. Good luck! ...Read more
Antigen injections for warts my 14 year old has several warts that we have tried many things for through out the years to no avail. He was just seen by a dermatoligist and had them froze. She said id this doesn't work, which she assumes it won't, her next
Your : Your dermatologist is probably talking about the candida antigen injection. It is typically delivered as an injection into the largest wart or two. Studies show varying effectiveness, but it has certainly worked in many patients. Other than the pain of the injection itself, some patients can get mild flu-like symptoms, but most tolerate it very well. I hope that helps. ...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
Monotest (target values <1.0=negativ). Values: EBV VCA IgG-Ak 39.9; EBV VCA IgM-Ak 1.1; EBNA-1 IgG-Ak 14.7; EBV DNA (PCR) negativ. What does it mean?
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
