About Our Hepatitis B Core Antibody Test, IgM

Note: Fasting is not required for this test.

Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) contracted via blood or other bodily fluids. This virus attacks the liver and is preventable by vaccination. Hepatitis B can be spread by percutaneous or mucosal exposure to infected blood and various body fluids like saliva, menstrual, vaginal and seminal fluids.

This blood test detects the IgM antibody to hepatitis B core antigen, which is a reliable marker for acute disease for a hepatitis B viral infection. At times, this marker is the only one demonstrated for the diagnosis of a hepatitis B viral infection.

More than 90 percent of healthy adults who contract hepatitis B virus will recover naturally from the virus within the first year.


Sometimes (HBV) Hepatitis B includes the following symptoms:

  • Lethargy/Severe fatigue
  • Dark Urine
  • Jaundice
  • Stomach pain
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Liver failure
  • Liver cancer
  • Cirrhosis
