Details
Who should take the test?

Hepatitis B is a viral disease associated with liver inflammation. An acute infection can turn into a chronic course.

The typical transmission route in adults is sexual contact. Even the smallest injuries to the skin and mucous membranes are enough for infection. Sperm, vaginal secretions, saliva and tears of hepatitis B infected persons are also infectious. Hepatitis B can also be transmitted during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

Particularly at risk for infection are:

  • Medical personal
  • Dialysis patients
  • Drug addicts
  • People who get pierced ears, tattoos or piercings under unsanitary conditions
  • People with changing sexual partners
  • People with chronic liver disease
How does it work?

You collect the sample (blood spot), send it back to us and we will provide you with information about your Hepatitis B status. If you test positive, you should talk to a doctor about treatment options to avoid passing an infection to a partner.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

After you get tested, it’s important for you to find out the result of your test so that you can talk to a doctor about treatment options if Hepatitis B was detected. Still have questions?

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a viral disease associated with liver inflammation. An acute infection can turn into a chronic course. The viruses are transmitted primarily via unprotected sexual intercourse or blood. Two billion people are considered to be infected or have experienced a hepatitis B infection. The WHO currently estimates the number of infected persons at about 257 million and the number of deaths due to the consequences of a hepatitis B virus infection at about 887,000 annually. This makes hepatitis B the fourth leading cause of infection-related death worldwide. Fortunately, these figures are steadily improving because many countries have initiated hepatitis B vaccination programs. The WHO’s long-term goal is to eradicate hepatitis B through vaccination.

Medication can be given for symptoms such as pain or nausea. Physical rest and a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet are advisable. In general, acute hepatitis B can be cured at home; only in severe cases must the patient be hospitalized. Antiviral therapy is only recommended if liver function is already impaired and liver failure is imminent.
