Co existing Hep c & Hep b 3 years 6 months ago #27995

Starting Mavyret today. Have chronic Hep C for many years. Checked for Hep b and results were positive antibody and negative antigen. Am concerned about warning for potential Hep B reactivating but my Infectious Disease MD isn’t concerned about it. Anybody else in this situation or have completed Maryvet treatment with these co existing Heps?

Hello MissusB , just wanted to say welcome to the forum and congratulations on starting treatment, Mavyret is an excellent drug, that's really great. I'm sure our resident expert, Dr Freeman, will answer your inquiry soon as to why your doctor is not concerned about Hep B reactivation in your case. Best of luck to you.

Here's an explanation about Hep C antibodies, antigen and status I wrote 3 years ago

fixhepc.com/forum/experts-corner/1328-he...hat-s-the-story.html

I presume you are positive for the Hep B surface antibody which means you're protected. If you are positive for Hep C core antibody we need to know your surface antibody status.

Do you have a copy of the results?
YMMV
