Hepatitis C Screen.

Tuberculosis QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus.

Still Have Questions?

Can HBV be prevented?


Yes. The best way to prevent hepatitis B is by getting vaccinated. The hepatitis B vaccine is typically given as a series of 3 shots over a period of 6 months. The entire series is needed for long-term protection.

What is the difference between the antibody test and the surface antigen test?


The antibody test detects substances that were produced in response to the HBV virus, either through acute infection or immunization.

The antigen test looks for HBsAg, a protein on the surface of the hepatitis B virus, so the antigen test can detect an active infection. The antigen test can also be used to identify chronic infections.

Is a hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection curable?


If you are infected, treatments are available that may be able to slow or stop the damage to your liver. If caught in time, many people can even be cured.
