It's called the viral load of the Hepatitis B virus. Quantitative tests look at how many viruses are in the body. It tells how much viral DNA is in the blood when you get sick. Usually, this test is done to see how well hepatitis B treatment is going. Hepatitis B virus mostly spreads through bodily fluids or unprotected sex.
All but a few of the effects of a virus fade on their own in about 4 to 8 weeks. When the HepB virus level isn't controlled, it can cause chronic hepatitis and liver cirrhosis.
The Viral Load, Quantitative, shows how much hepatitis B is in your blood. This test can tell if the Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is made in the liver. The virus is active and has the best chance of causing liver damage if the HBV viral load is more than 20,000 international units per milliliter (IU/mL). This is also true for people with chronic hepatitis B who doesn't have HBeAg. If the HBV viral load is more than 2,000 IU/mL in people who don't have HBeAg, the virus is active and can cause liver damage. In this case, treatment is thought to be necessary if the HBV viral load is above these numbers.
This test is done:
• For the people who have been infected with hepatitis B for a long time and are already taking antiviral drugs.
• For the diagnosis of hepatitis B, see how the treatment worked at the start of treatment and the end.
