Hepatitis Be Antibody Blood Test

Hepatitis Be Antibody Blood Test

Also Known As

Anti-HBe, Antibody to Hepatitis Be Antigen, HBeAb

The Purpose of an HBeAb Blood Test

The hepatitis Be antibody test can be used to diagnose and stage this form of viral hepatitis, or it may also be used to monitor your infection status if you have the disease, to determine how well your antiviral treatment is working. You contract hepatitis B after exposure to infected body fluids. Staging is important because hepatitis B can develop into a chronic condition for some people, affecting their liver and increasing their risk for complications such as liver disease or cancer.

What Does the Hepatitis Be Antibody Lab Test Measure?

This test detects the presence of hep Be antibodies that your immune system produces to fight off infection. These antibodies appear in the blood during recovery from acute hepatitis B and can remain detectable for several years afterward.

Who Should Take a Hep BeAb Test?

If you’ve been in close contact with someone who has hepatitis B and have been exposed to their bodily fluids, you may need an HBeAb blood test. Watch for the following hepatitis B symptoms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Jaundice
  • Fever
  • Stomach pain and nausea
  • Fatigue

Your doctor may also order hepatitis Be antibody testing as part of your treatment plan to assess the efficacy of your antiviral medication.

Hepatitis Be Antibody Test Preparation

There are no special instructions you need to follow before taking this blood test.

Hep Be Antibody Results

Positive test results often indicate that the hepatitis B virus is inactive, which means it’s no longer replicating itself in the body. However, your doctor may also be ordering other hepatitis B liver tests to get a comprehensive picture of your state of health and how your body is responding to the virus.
