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 test looks for hepatitis B surface antibodies (anti-HBs) in the blood. The presence of anti-HBs is normally indicates that you have either been infected and have recovered from hepatitis B or that you have been successfully vaccinated against it.
