HBV DNA Qualitative


The Hepatitis B virus stands as a leading culprit behind chronic liver conditions across the globe. It primarily spreads through contact with infected blood or during sexual activities, as well as from a pregnant woman to her baby. The HBV DNA Detection Test, employed by the Taqman RT PCR (Qualitative) method, is a notably precise procedure designed to identify the Hepatitis B viral DNA in a person’s blood. This technique is capable of magnifying and locating trace levels of the virus’s genetic code.

Physicians prescribe this test for the diagnosis of a current Hepatitis B infection, which has the potential to harm the liver. Identifying the infection at an early stage is essential, as prompt treatment can aid in managing the condition, avoiding more severe issues such as liver scarring or cancer, and lowering the likelihood of infecting others. The outcome of this test provides a qualitative indication, simply showing if the Hepatitis B DNA is present or not, without measuring the exact quantity of virus.

Results may be available within a few days, depending on the testing facility.

Abnormal results from the HBV DNA Detection (Qualitative) test indicate the presence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA in the patient's blood, confirming an active HBV infection. Depending on the patient's clinical status, further evaluation and management, including treatment options, may be recommended by a healthcare provider specializing in infectious diseases or hepatology.
