Protein C Antigen
Interpret hepatitis B panel results:
Hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) - Non-reactive, Hep B core Total antibody Anti-HBc Reactive, NAT Non-reactive?
I got test back that said my fibringen activity antithrobin III protein c protein c antigen were high watch would that mean thank u?
hepatitis b surface antigen reactive and hepatitis b surface antibody nonreactive and core antibody total reactive and HBV DNA detected sir plz reply?
You carry hep B: I am assuming you feel well and this was a surprise finding. There are millions of people like yourself. You will require lifelong health care for it unless / until a means of eradicating it is found. You pose no danger to a partner who is immunized. ...Read more
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
Advia hep. C antibody +,HCV RNA -. 3 months later Architect hep. C antibody -, HCV RNA -. 2 hep C Ab Verification tests-.Can above person donate blood?
May be: You ought to disclose these results to the blood bank so that they may make a determination on your eligibility to donate along with other health factors. I commend you for considering doing your civic duty. ...Read more
Hb core ab-igm non reactive hepatitis b core ab total reactive and hep b surface antigen non reactive what does this mean?
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.
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
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
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
Is Abbott Architect(cmia method) hepatitis c antibody test more accurate than Siemens Advia Centaur hepatatis c antibody test method?
Advia hep.C antibody +, HCV RNA -. 3 months later Architect hep C Ab -, HCV RNA -. 2 Hep C Ab Verification tests -.Is Advia hepC Ab test false positiv
Without more info: and only the data you submitted in your question, I would put it together the way you did: the first Advia hepC Ab test was a false positive. I presume other experts who arranged your follow-up testing have suggested the same interpretation. Stay well:) ...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
Is a core positive antibody for hepetitis b is dangerous. Igm antibody negetive. Surface antigen negetive with surface antibody positive. Explain?
Is HIV Pooled RNA together with HIV antibody test and HEP C pooled RNA together with Hep C antibody test at 93 days of a Lancet prick conclusive? Thx
Yes: Pooling makes no difference in these tests. Negative results at 3 months are conclusive. ...Read more
Increased aldolase, complement c3/c4 serum, sed rate, c-react. Protein, beta globulin, monocytes, bun/creatin low mcv-mch, vit d-possible causes?
Complicated: When i was doing clinical medicine, these were collectively sort of the flags for sarcoid disease but I am not saying that's the case here. This is because sarcoid is a diagnosis of exclusion so the advice is to rule out other diseases with additional diagnostic tests which can be done by a primary care physician or rheumatologist. ...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
Test result was "Hepatitis Surface Antibody - Nonreactive" and "Hepatitis B Surface Antigen - Reactive", "HBS AG Confirmation - Nonconfirm".
I had 3 to 4 blood clots in lungs and hospital did a test to see why i had them fibringen antithrombin III protein c protein c antigen all high?
Not the cause of PE: Pulmonary embolism (pe) is an abnormal clot. Your docs are looking for cause. Fibrinogen is an acute phase reactant and is not likely a cause of your clot. Low protein c and low at-iii can contribute to pe; however your values are high and therefore did not contribute to your pe. I am sure your docs are looking for other causes. Good luck. ...Read more
There are DNA, Proteins, Antibody/Antigens. But what's used while detecting the presents of Toxins (ID's, drugs, chemicals,ect)?
Toxins: I am not sure I understand your question. If you have a certain toxin in mind that you would like to know how to detect, I recommend that you name that. There is direct and indirect toxin measurement, again depending on the toxin. ...Read more
Please find full updated list on all DNA, Antibodies, Antigens, and Proteins. Need text files for research projects. Links would help!!
NIH: AMA. Library of Congress- not this forum. ...Read more
With new advance technology. What's the most superior way to detect all ID's and Toxins? Protein? or Antibody or Antigen? This is better then DNA?
No single answer: This varies tremendously depending on the possible infectious agent. The speed of the test, the sensitivity, the specificity and the cost are all factors. Anyone offering a simplistic answer is someone without real-life experience here. ...Read more
What test indicate old or previously treated infectious diseases? Antigen, toxin, protein, anti-body..?
Extremely complicate: It depends on what disease. Syphilis for example has several tests..Rpr using a reagin looking for an antibody to the spirochete. Clostridium difficile looks for toxin a and b. Hiv western blot looks for HIV envelope proteins. Igm indicated a more recent infection while igg a longer time interval. It is not as simple as it seems defining old vs new..Tb for instance is a good example. ...Read more
If you made a customized microarray with no limitations-How would you rule out all known Pathogens. DNA,Proteins,Antibodies/Antigens. What else?
!antigens, antibodies, dna/rna sequences, toxins, proteins. Other ways to detect pathogens not already mentioned?-depends on the pathogen i assume..?
Culture them: Plenty of them will raise their families in the lab given the opportunity. Why do you ask? ...Read more
Alkaline Phosphatase 129 / C-Reactive Protein 13.2 / Ebv Nuclear Antigen Ab & Ebv Ab Vca, Igg >600 / Dr. says no worries but should I be concerned?
Depends: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your C-reactive protein is elevated suggesting inflammation. you may wish to repeat the test in 6 months or so. Your doctor knows more about your health and you should follow his/her advice. ...Read more
How many different ways can a pathogen be detected? Is 1 way better then another for all pathogens? Example: antibody-antigen-dna/rna-proteins..?
Many: A pathogen is any micro-organisms that causes disease. We find different pathogens by different techniques -- prions (which count as pathogens) only by chemistry, many by polymerase chain reaction, seeking antibodies, growing them (most bacteria, some viruses), or seeing them under the microscope. There's no one-size-fits-all. ...Read more
Is it a problem if my doctor uses psa (protein specific antigen) tests instead of a digital rectal exam for the prostate?
No: Prostate specific antigen (not protein) is a very sensitive marker of prostate function. It very frequently will be elevated before any abnormality is detected by digital rectal exam. However, nothing beats a good clinician being able to feel something on exam. So, really, the two work together to achieve the best results. ...Read more
My protein c levels are elevated to 213%. Also my hexagonal phospholipid neutralization came back positive. I had a massive PE and not sure what's up ?
