This blood test is the earliest indicator of acute Hepatitis B. This test can also distinguish between carriers of Hepatitis B and active infections through its confirmation process. What is "confirmation by neutralization"? That means if you have a positive or borderline positive result, the lab will immediately run another test on the blood sample to confirm the finding, at no extra charge.
The Hepatitis C Surface Antibody Test (Anti-HBs) is a blood test that looks for antibodies to the Hepatitis C virus. What does this mean? If you have been exposed to the virus, your body will make antibodies to fight the virus.
Hepatitis A, B, and C affect liver function and can lead to severe liver damage and liver cancer. While some cases of hepatitis A can be transmitted through water or food that is contaminated with fecal matter, often, all forms of hepatitis are transmitted through sexual contact or needle sharing. Vaccinations are available to help prevent Hepatitis A, B, and C.
