Frequently Asked Questions

HBV test is done for detection of hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA in serum of patients. 
Is useful to detect mutant HBV which are negative for hepatitis B surface antigen

Presence of HBV DNA in serum by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)

HBV test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.

 Diagnosis of acute or chronic hepatitis B is based on serologic markers and molecular assays. Combination of serologic markers such as HbsAg or anti-HBc IgM (Hepatitis core IgM antibody) along with other parameters such as HbeAg are generally employed to screen for acute or chronic infections, convalescence etc. HBV DNA PCR assay is valuable in: 
- Early diagnosis of HBV infection. HBV DNA can be detected 21 days prior to appearance of HbsAg
- Indicator of chronic hepatitis
- Demonstrate viral replication in patients with mutant HBV
Re-emergence of HBV DNA in serum (after it had become non-detectable) following treatment is suggestive of drug resistance
