Hepatitis B virus surface protein can be found in high concentrations in serum after acute or chronic hepatitis B virus infection. The presence of HBsAg in a person implies that they are contagious. As part of the natural immunological response to infection, the body develops antibodies to HBsAg. Hepatitis B vaccine is made with the antigen HBsAg.
In people who don't have HBsAg, anti-HBc IgM can help them find out if they have HBV. This means that the best diagnostic tests for acute hepatitis B infection would be to look for both HBsAg and anti-HBc IgM.
Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg) Testing is done to detect:
• The hepatitis B virus infects the liver (HBV).
• A chronic hepatitis B infection lasts over six months. High blood pressure and diabetes are linked to chronic HBs (permanent liver scarring).
You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
