Hello and welcome to HCM,
The test result that you have posted is Widal test done for typhoid and paratyphoid A and B fever.
The tests detects presence of antibodies against antigens O and H of Salmonella typhi and Salmonella paratyphi.
The titres of 1:80 and above are suggestive of typhoid fever.
The antibody titres for salmonella paratyphi are lower than 1:80 and are hence negative.
You need to consult your doctor with report for clinical correlation and plan further management.

Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
