What does HBV Quant. Measure?
The Hepatitis B Virus – Viral Load, Quantitative test measures the actual amount of hepatitis B present in a blood sample. This test helps determine whether Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) is getting reproduced in the liver. If HBV viral load is greater than 20,000 international units per milliliter (IU/mL) in a person with detectable Hepatitis B envelope antigen (HBeAg) then it indicates that the virus is active and has the greatest potential to cause damage to the liver. Similarly, if HBV viral load is greater than 2,000 IU/mL in HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B patients then it indicates that the virus is active and has the potential to cause damage to the liver. If the HBV viral load is above these numbers, treatment is considered necessary.
