What does hepatitis b surface antibody borderline non reactive mean?

What does hepatitis b surface antibody borderline non reactive mean?

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

Hello docs, does being HBsAG non reactive mean you are free from hepa b virus?

Hello docs, does being HBsAG non reactive mean you are free from hepa b virus?

Yes, but you may: Need vaccination. Lack of hep b surface antigen means that there is no active infection. But you may be susceptible to infection and if you are not immune, you should get vaccinated. See this site for explanation of hepatitis b testing.

Is ELISA test for HIV 1 & 2 antibodies conclusive after 8-9 weeks of exposure? Does NON-REACTIVE mean NEGATIVE?

ELISA for HIV: The ELISA test is not conclusive after any amount of time. The ELISA is a screening test and if it comes back positive, a Western blot will need to be done. Non-reactive is a good thing to be and it does mean that you are negative for HIV virus. Although there is a window period when you can have the HIV virus but still have a nonreactive result. Another test may be needed in that case. Suerte ...Read more

What does CIA non-reactive syphilis mean? Does that mean I need more tests?

What does CIA non-reactive syphilis mean? Does that mean I need more tests?

Depends on timing, Sx: The answer depends on the timing of possible exposure to syphilis & any symptoms (Sx) that you may have. So, it's impossible to answer your question here. Use HealthTap Prime or talk to the doctor who ordered the test. CIA, or chemiluminescence assays, are REACTIVE when treponemal (bacteria that causes syphilis) antibodies detected. It can be Non-Reactive in early stages (false neg) despite Sx. GL ...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?

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

I got tested to see if I was immune to Measles mumps and rubella and results: measles and rubella reactive. Mumps non reactive. What does that mean?

I got tested to see if I was immune to Measles mumps and rubella and results: measles and rubella reactive. Mumps non reactive. What does that mean?

Need a booster shot: That result usually means the patient is immune to measles and to rubella, but is not immune to mumps. If she had her MMR shot before, her mumps antibodies are no longer high enough to ensure protection against mumps. She can ask her doctor about getting an MMR booster shot, which would increase her antibodies to block all 3 contagious diseases. ...Read more

I had blood tests done and my hepatitis b surface antibody QL reactive, hepatitis b surface antigen non-reactive, what does it mean?

Need entire panel.: You're best off using HealthTap Prime to answer your question. You can upload the entire lab report & discuss with a doctor. So far, test shows you have antibodies but no antigen: means either you're in the "window period" after exposure when the virus goes "underground" or you were given a vaccine which made you immune to hepatitis B. We need the pre-core "e" test. Use HealthTap Prime to disucss. ...Read more

What exactly does being vdrl reactive mean?

What exactly does being vdrl reactive mean?

Infection/Autoimmune: A reactive or positive VDRL test can occur in either active infection from syphilis or from the presence of an antibody that promotes clotting blood too readily. This latter consideration arises with so-called anti-phospholipid antibodies which may arise in autoimmune disease. One of these autoimmune diseases is lupus or "SLE" (systemic lupus erythematosus). Syphilis would not be the cause here. ...Read more

What does "reactive Epithelial Cell Changes" mean?

Reaction to injury: Many body structures have an inner lining, somewhat like a "skin" on their service. This is true of the airway or the Gut. This "skin" is made up of a lining cell called epithelium. When these body parts are exposed to irritation or injury there can be changes in the lining cells that reflect evidence of this injury or irritation that are not very specific for any one disease, called reactive. ...Read more
