The Silent Killer, Hepatitis B is a growing public health concern. Home Bio Test gives you a way to obtain a confidential answer to the question of your own Hepatitis status.

Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is a protein antigen produced by HBV. This antigen is the earliest indicator of acute hepatitis B and frequently identifies infected people before symptoms appear. HBsAg disappears from the blood during the recovery period. In some people (particularly those infected as children or those with a weak immune system, such as those with AIDS), chronic infection with HBV may occur and HBsAg remains positive.

Sometimes, HBV goes into “hiding” in the liver and other cells and does not produce new viruses that can infect others, or produces them in such low amounts that they cannot be found in the blood. People who have this form are said to be carriers. In other cases, the body continues to make viruses that can further infect the liver and can be spread to other people. In both these cases, HBsAg will be positive. The next test is helpful for distinguishing these two states.


Accuracy:
Home Bio Test rapid Hepatitis tests are greater than 99% accurate as demonstrated in multi-center clinical trials. They are the same tests used by doctors and hospitals.

Who Should Get Tested?
Anyone who may have been exposed to hepatitis B through a blood transfusion or organ transplant before 1992; anyone who has had occupational exposure including healthcare work or military service; anyone that may have been exposed through sexual contact with someone known to be hepatitis B; and anyone that may have taken non-prescribed drugs or steroids by needle. Over 4 million Americans are infected.

Why Get Tested?
Early detection is important in determining appropriate treatments. Anyone who is infected with hepatitis C should refrain from drinking alcohol to avoid further liver damage.
