It depends on your HBSAG result, that is a key piece of information you need. You could be in category 5 or 6 below.

1.  Hepatitis B  - Susceptible
HBsAg negative
anti-HBc negative
anti-HBs negative

2.Hepatitis B  - Immune due to natural infection
HBsAg negative
anti-HBc positive
anti-HBs positive

3. Hepatitis B  - Immune due to hepatitis B vaccination
HBsAg negative
anti-HBc negative
anti-HBs positive

4.Hepatitis B  - Acutely infected
HBsAg positive
anti-HBc positive
IgM anti-HBc positive
anti-HBs negative

5.Hepatitis B  - Chronically infected
HBsAg positive
anti-HBc positive
IgM anti-HBc negative
anti-HBs negative

6. Hepatitis B  - Interpretation unclear; four possibilities:
HBsAg negative
anti-HBc positive
anti-HBs negative

1. Resolved infection (most common)
2. False-positive anti-HBc, thus susceptible
3. “Low level” chronic infection
4. Resolving acute infection
