    Overview of the HBsAg Test 

    The hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) test is a part of the hepatitis B panel test and is used to detect hepatitis B infection. Hepatitis B is a viral infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that damages the liver. The disease can have acute (short and severe) phases or be chronic (long-term). 

    The hepatitis B infection has a high rate of transmission through contact with bodily fluids during sexual activity with an infected partner or blood, exposure to sharp instruments, unsafe injections, and also from a mother to her child during childbirth and in early childhood. The HBsAg test is recommended for the screening of hepatitis B in an individual at risk for hepatitis B infection. 

    It is crucial to understand the health risks associated with hepatitis B infection and the modes of transmission of the hepatitis B virus while considering the need for an HBsAg test. If you are concerned about your long-term liver health, get a primary screening for hepatitis B infection through the HBsAg test in Mumbai at Orange Health Labs to catch the condition early. 

    Reasons for the HBsAg Test 

    According to the World Health Organization, in 2019, 296 million people had an ongoing chronic hepatitis B infection, and every year, about 1.5 million new infections are observed. Hepatitis B can cause death among affected individuals as it may progress to cirrhosis and liver cancer. However, hepatitis B can be prevented by vaccinations and early testing. Due to the severity of the hepatitis B infection, an HBsAg test should be prioritized if an infection or exposure to an infected individual is suspected. 

    Below are some reasons to get tested for HBsAg: 

    • To detect hepatitis B virus infection in patients with symptoms suggestive of hepatitis. 

    • To screen for hepatitis B infection following accidental exposure to HBV, such as in healthcare workers. Testing should be repeated 6 months after the exposure. 

    • To screen for hepatitis B infection during pregnancy to prevent the transmission of the infection from mother to child. Immunocompromised patients and infants are at a higher risk of developing severe symptoms of chronic hepatitis. 

    • To screen for hepatitis B infection in individuals at risk of acquiring the infection, such as intravenous drug users, sex workers, hemodialysis patients, prisoners, etc.

    Parameters Measured During HBsAg Test

    The hepatitis B surface antigen is a protein that serves as a serologic marker for the identification of hepatitis B virus. The test involves one parameter – the detection of this protein on the surface of the hepatitis B virus in blood, which indicates a hepatitis B infection. 

    The results of the HBsAg test are expressed as either positive or negative. A positive HBsAg test indicates hepatitis B virus infection. In case the results are positive, further testing is recommended using other hepatitis B serological tests to check the phase of the infection/whether the infection is acute or chronic.
