Hepatitis A Immunity Test - More Information

The hepatitis A test measures hep a antibody blood levels to check for immunity.

Hepatitis A is a disease caused by an infection with the hepatitis A virus (HAV). Hepatitis A infections typically occur through contamination in food and water from feces containing HAV. After an infection with HAV, some people develop symptoms in as soon as fourteen days. Affecting the liver, hepatitis A infections cause flu-like symptoms, nausea, vomiting, yellow skin (jaundice) and cramping. Symptoms can least up to six months and, rarely, liver failure can occur. There is no known treatment for Hepatitis A.

Most people in the United States have received the Hepatitis A vaccine as part of their routine vaccines growing up. Hepatitis A vaccine consists of two doses of an inactivated vaccine and confers immunity for anywhere from ten years to a lifetime.

This hepatitis A test measures the IgG and IgM blood antibody levels. IgM antibodies are typically only present after an new hepatitis A infection. IgG antibodies appear over a longer time period and typically indicate that one has immunity to hep A. As a result, previously vaccinated people with active immunity typically have a positive IgG antibody and a negative IgM antibody.
