Results Of HBsAg Examination
Good Afternoon Doc, I Want To Ask About 2 Years Ago I did a medical check-up, with the results of HBsAg: Reactive, and Anti-HBS: Non-Reactive, about 3 Months Ago I did a Medical Check again because I didn’t have any symptoms I felt less sure, and the results are HBsAg: Non-Reactive and Anti-HBs: Non-Reactive, the next week I try to verify again at the Prodia Clinic and Result: HBsAg: Non-Reactive, Anti-HBs: Non-Reactive. Does this indicate that I am not infected with HBV? Thanks Doc.
Hello Irwan, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the results of your laboratory, it is stated that the results of HBsAg: non-reactive, and Anti-HBs: non-reactive, this means that you do not have hepatitis B infection. In laboratory tests for hepatitis b, there are several examined:
Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), to assess hepatitis B virus transmission. A negative result indicates there is no HBV virus infection in the body.
Hepatitis B core antigen (HbcAg), to determine the severity of hepatitis B infection (acute or chronic).
Hepatitis B surface antigen antibodies (anti-HBsAg). This test shows the body's immunity to the hepatitis B virus. A positive test result means you have had a hepatitis B vaccine or are recovering from acute hepatitis B.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
