PURPOSE Hepatitis B surface Antigen (HBsAg) is the hallmark in diagnosing hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. In India many commercial assays are available for detection of HBsAg but very few can measure it quantitatively. The present study presents the comparative evaluation of two methods and their correlation with serum HBsAg in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Consecutive patients of CHB were included and there HBsAg levels were measured by two methods: (i) Elecsys… CONTINUE READING
