Anti HBsAg Test or Surface Antibody Test in Ahmedabad
Anti HBsAg Test is mainly used to detect past exposure to HBV and also checks the body immunity levels.
It is used to detect past exposure to HBV; it can also develop from successful vaccination so it is used to conclude the need for vaccination (if anti-HBs is absent) or to establish if a person has recovered from an infection and is immune (cannot get the infection again).
Anti-HBs or HBsAb (hepatitis B surface antibody) is detected in a blood test after the disappearance of HBsAg in persons who are able to get rid of the virus and avoid a chronic infection. The presence of anti-HBs following a novel acute infection generally points towards recovery and a person is then secured (or “immune”) from re-infection with hepatitis B.
Hepatitis B tests may be recommended when someone shows symptoms associated with acute hepatitis. Some of these include:
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea, vomiting
- Abdominal pain
- Dark urine
- Pale stools
- Joint pain
