Hepatitis virus panel

There are different tests for hepatitis A and B. A positive test is considered abnormal.

A positive test may mean:

  • You currently have a hepatitis infection. This may be a new infection (acute hepatitis), or it may be an infection that you have had for a long time (chronic hepatitis).
  • You had a hepatitis infection in the past, but you no longer have the infection and cannot spread it to others.

Hepatitis A test results:

  • IgM anti-hepatitis A virus (HAV) antibodies, you have had a recent infection with hepatitis A
  • Total (IgM and IgG) antibodies to hepatitis A, you have a previous or past infection, or immunity to hepatitis A

Hepatitis B tests:

  • Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), you have an active hepatitis B infection, either recent or chronic
  • Antibody to hepatitis B core antigen (Anti-HBc), you have a recent or past hepatitis B infection
  • Antibody to HBsAg (Anti-HBs), you have a past hepatitis B infection or you have received the hepatitis B vaccine and are unlikely to become infected
  • Hepatitis B type e antigen (HBeAg), you have a chronic hepatitis B infection and you are more likely to spread the infection to others through sexual contact or by sharing needles

Antibodies to hepatitis C can most often be detected 4 to 10 weeks after you get the infection. Other types of tests may be done to decide on treatment and monitor the hepatitis C infection.
