Hepatitis B Immunity Blood Test

This blood test is used to assess your immunity to the Hepatitis B virus by looking for Hepatitis B surface antibodies of the virus, which your body creates after previous exposure and subsequent recovery from the virus, or when you have sufficient protection following completion of a vaccination course.

This test will not determine if you are currently infected with Hepatitis B, nor differentiate between whether you have been previously exposed to the infection, or have been previously vaccinated.

Why take this test?

  • To determine immunity prior to planning pregnancy 
  • Determine your immunity for work or for university
  • To see whether vaccination for Hepatitis B has given you sufficient protection, immunity may also be due to previous exposure to the virus
  • Unsure whether you received vaccination as a child 

Our blood tests can be booked in at one of our London clinics or at one of our nationwide pharmacies and will be performed by one of our highly trained nurses/phlebotomists.

What is Hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B, or HBV is a virus known to cause acute or chronic inflammation of the Liver that is spread through infected blood, and other bodily fluids such as saliva, sperm and vaginal fluids. HBV can be transmitted through unprotected sex, and intravenous drug use.

Infection of HBV can differ from person to person, with most adults not experiencing any symptoms at all, as your immune system can effectively tackle the virus. If symptoms do present, they tend to appear around 1-3 months following infection and last a similar length of time. You may experience a combination of fatigue, fever, nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting and a darkening of your urine , which can progress into Jaundice ( yellowing of the eyes and skin).

However in some cases infection of the liver can persist past this length of time, and if longer than 6 month the infection is determined as a chronic Hepatitis B infection. This is a much more serious condition which can lead to long term liver scarring known as Cirrhosis, and can even lead to cancer of the liver.

Best prevention against Hepatitis B is vaccination, alongside safe sex practices
