Interpret hepatitis B panel results: Hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) - Non-reactive, Hep B core Total antibody Anti-HBc Reactive, NAT Non-reactive?

Past infection. You had infection with hepatitis B but do not have active infection now.
Prior Infection. The testing is quite extensive and shows no evidence of a Hepatitis B infection, but there is a major test missing which is the hepatitis B surface antibody, which shows immunity. So, either you are immunized and immune, previously exposed and cleared the infection and immune. The question next is do you need to be immunized or not.

Need to see report. Use HealthTap Prime to upload the report & discuss with a doctor, live. We need to know if you are experiencing any hepatitis-related symptoms. Also, need to know if you were ever immunized or exposed. Something doesn't quite make sense, since you state that results were below cutoff levels & is considered "reactive".

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?

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".

Hmmmm. Got me beat. A reactive Hep B antigen indicates that you have Hepatitis B. However, It looks like the test was NOT confirmed. My experience with labs is that their report format could use some improvement and you may be misreading this. Talk to the doc who ordered the test. Read more...
