Antibody to the hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg).


n an antibody to the e antigen of the hepatitis B virus. Its detection in the blood indicates the presence of a low-titer hepatitis B infection and decreased ability of the infected person to pass the virus on to another person.

The appearance of anti-HBe is indicative of lower infectivity.
Venous blood samples of 3 cc were obtained from these children and their HBV markers (HBsAg, anti-HBs, HBeAg, anti-HBe, anti-HBclgM, ve anti-HBclgG) were tested with the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay method.
The ARCHITECT system offers 12 assays for hepatitis A, B and C outside the US: HBsAg, HBsAg Confirmatory, HBsAg Quantitative, HBeAg, Anti-HBe, HAVAb IgG, HAVAb IgM, Anti-HBc, Anti-HBc IgM, Anti-HBs, Anti-HCV and HCV Ag.
Anti-Hbe occurs shortly after the disappearance of HBeAg and indicates that the patient is recovering from HBV infection.
Anti-HBe usually reflects diminished viral replication.
Among 95 mothers whose serum contained anti-HBe, viral loads ranged between undetectable and 8.
Moreover, the patient achieved neither HBeAg seroconversion to anti-HBe nor normalization of ALT during the entire period of treatment, except for month 12, when her ALT concentration decreased to 33 IU/L (the upper limit of normal was 35 IU/L).
Associated with the loss of HBeAg, or a fall or loss of the HBV DNA concentrations, the appearance of anti-HBe, and histologic evidence of a decrease in inflammatory activity.
The Elecsys automated platform (Roche) was used to screen for HBeAg and anti-HBe before the onset of treatment and at 44 weeks after the initiation of treatment to evaluate seroconversion from HBeAg to anti-HBe.
Yatisinda alinan viral serolojik tetkiklerden; Anti-HAV IgM pozitif, IgG negatifti; HBsAg, anti-HBs, anti HBc IgM, HBeAg ve anti-HBe negatifti.
Most HBV carriers will clear HBeAg, produce anti-HBe (antibodies to hepatitis B e antigen), and progress to the inactive carrier state.
