IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Serology, Virus, Hepatitis Be, Antigen

Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect early soluble antigens (i.e., Be antigens), closely associated with surface antigens of hepatitis B viruses. These antigens typically appear in serum shortly after appearance of the surface antigens; they also disappear shortly after disappearance of surface antigens. Hepatitis B viruses are DNA viruses of the genus Hepadnavirus, family Hepadnaviridae. These viruses may cause hepatitis, a disease characterized by jaundice and the increase of some enzymes in serum (e.g., aspartate aminotransferase); these viruses may be transmitted percutaneously (e.g., via body piercing, tattooing), parenterally, from mother to child at birth, or by intimate (e.g., sexual) contact.
