Welcome to

Hepatitis B surface antigen is the earliest indicator of acute infection wihh hepatitis B and is also indicative of chronic infection if its presence persists for more than 6 months. It is useful for the diagnosis of HBV infection and for screening of blood.

Its specific antibody is anti-HBs.

Hepatitis B e antigen appearing during weeks 3 to 6 indicates an acute active infection at its most infectious period, and means that the patient is infectious.

This is the specific antibody to hepatitis B e antigen. During the acute stage of infection the seroconversion from e antigen to e antibody is prognostic for resolution of infection.

Thanks for using the service.

Wish u good health.
