Understanding Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Serum in Bhubaneshwar


What is Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Serum in Bhubaneshwar?

Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Serum helps identify the presence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) in the blood. It is available at an affordable price in Bhubaneshwar with Tata 1mg labs. HBsAg is a protein that appears in the blood during an active HBV infection and is the first marker of the infection.

Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Serum test is primarily used to screen for current hepatitis B infections, monitor the progress of the disease, and guide treatment plans. It also helps identify inactive carriers and evaluate the risk of infection progression in chronic hepatitis B patients.

What does Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Serum measure?

A Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Serum test checks and measures the amount of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) in an infected individual, particularly with chronic hepatitis B infection. HBsAg is the first serological marker, within 1 to 10 weeks, to appear in the blood after recent exposure to HBV.
