What are Hepatitis A, B and C?

Hepatitis A is an acute (short-term) disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). HAV is commonly transmitted through food or water that is contaminated with faeces from an infected person. Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). HBV causes inflammation and enlargement of the liver and can vary in severity. In some cases, HBV can cause lasting liver damage or become life-threatening. HBV is spread through contact with bodily fluids from an infected person. Hepatitis C (HCV) is the most common type of viral hepatitis in the UK and is spread through blood-to-blood contact with an infected individual. HCV is usually a chronic infection as, for the majority of those infected with HCV, the virus will remain in the body for several years

What can I test?

Hepatitis A IgM

Hepatitis A is an acute, short-term disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). Hepatitis A is commonly transmitted by through food or water which has been contaminated by faeces from someone who is already infected by the virus. This type of hepatitis is most common in countries where the sanitation is poor. IgM antibodies are involved in the very early stages of an immune response and first to be made by the body when fighting a new infection, providing short-term protection. A positive IgM result indicates a recent HAV infection.

Hepatitis B Surface Antigens

The hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is a protein on the surface of the hepatitis B virus, present in the blood during a hepatitis B virus infection. Checking for this surface antigen helps to identify acute and chronic HBV infections. Positive surface antigen meaning the virus is present and that the individual is infectious.

Hepatitis C Antibodies

Hepatitis C is a virus that can infect and damage the liver. It is mainly transmitted through sharing needles while injecting drugs, through unprotected sex with an infected person and can also be passed from mother to baby. Many who are infected with the virus are unaware as there are often no noticeable symptoms. However, a chronic hepatitis C infection can cause cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) which can lead to chronic liver disease. Hepatitis C antibodies are produced by the body in response to exposure to the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Testing for these antibodies in the blood helps to identify a hepatitis C infection.
