What is HbeAg?

The Hepatitis B e Antigen test is performed to diagnose an infection of Hepatitis B Virus. It is also performed as a part of a panel of tests for Hepatitis B to find out if the infection has been acquired recently. Patients who test positive for Hepatitis B e Ag are more infectious as compared to Hepatitis B e Ag negative patients. During recovery from acute hepatitis B, HBeAg level declines and becomes undetectable in the serum, while hepatitis B e-antibody (anti-HBe) appears and becomes detectable in the serum.
