From the expert

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 profile is a range of tests designed to be the most comprehensive check for the presence and development of Hepatitis B. Tests include Hepatitis B core antibody, Hepatitis B surface antigen, and Hepatitis B surface antibody to check for infection and differentiate between immunity due to a previous infection or a vaccination.

Why take this test?

  • You want to see if you have previously been exposed to HBV
  • You have an increased risk of contracting the hepatitis B virus
  • You want to see if you are immune to HBV
