One-Step Hepatitis B Virus Surface Antibody (HBsAb) Test Kit is a rapid and convenient immunochromatographic in vitro assay for the detection of HBsAb in human serum samples at or above the cutoff of 20 mIU/ml. It is intended for professional use as an aid in the diagnosis of Hepatitis B infection. This assay provides only a preliminary result. Clinical expertise and professional judgment should be sought to further evaluate the result of the test.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:
HBsAb appears several weeks after the disappearance of HBsAg and remains in the body for a long period of time. It is a protective antibody, and the antibody that best correlates with immunity to the Hepatitis B virus. HBsAb detection can be used to monitor the prognosis of patients recovering from Hepatitis B virus infection. The appearance of HBsAb suggests that the patient has prior immunological exposure to the Hepatitis B surface antigen and indicates that the patient is in a convalescent state, recovering from an acute phase of Hepatitis B.
