The Hepatitis Be Antibody test contains 1 test with 1 biomarker.
Hepatitis Be Antibody - Hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) - Detects antibody produced in response to HBV surface antigen. Used to detect previous exposure to HBV; it can also develop from successful vaccination so it is used to determine the need for vaccination (if anti-HBs is absent) or to determine if a person has recovered from an infection and is immune (cannot get the infection again).
HBeAb appears in the early convalescence of HBV infection. With carrier state and chronic hepatitis, HBeAb may not develop.
