Hepatitis B Profile

About this test

Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) which causes inflammation and enlargement of the liver. HBV infections can vary from a mild form that lasts a few weeks, to a more serious, chronic, form which can cause lasting liver damage. HBV is spread through contact with blood or other body fluids from an infected person. Exposure can occur, through sharing needles or through unprotected sex. People who live in or travel to areas of the world where hepatitis B is prevalent are at a greater risk. It is possible for pregnant women to pass the infection to their babies, usually during or after birth.

This profile is a range of tests designed to be the most comprehensive check for the presence and development of Hepatitis B. Tests include Hepatitis B core antibody, Hepatitis B surface antigen, and Hepatitis B surface antibody to check for infection and differentiate between immunity due to a previous infection or a vaccination. 

Who is this test for?

For anyone wanting to see if they have previously been exposed to HBV, are immune to HBV and for those at an increased risk of contracting the hepatitis B virus.

Important Information

Our doctors will interpret your results based on the information you have provided, but will not diagnose, consult or provide any treatment. You will be advised to see your doctor for any necessary follow-up action.

Tests Included

Hepatitis

The hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is a protein on the surface of the hepatitis B virus, present in the blood during a hepatitis B virus infection. Checking for this surface antigen helps to identify acute and chronic HBV infections. Positive surface antigen meaning the virus is present and that the individual is infectious.

A positive result for HBsAg indicates active hepatitis B infection, this means that there is a risk you can spread the hepatitis B virus to others.
