Hepatitis B is an infectious illness caused by hepatitis B virus (HBV) which is an enveloped, double-stranded DNA virus belonging to the Hepadnaviridae family and is recognized as the major cause of blood transmitted hepatitis together with hepatitis C virus (HCV). HBV is excreted in body fluids such as semen, saliva, blood and urine in persons with acute or chronic infection. The hepatitis B virus is known as a blood-borne virus because it is transmitted from one person to another via blood or fluids contaminated with blood. Transmission of hepatitis B virus results from exposure to infectious blood or body fluids.When HBV invades the body it causes liver damage through induction of auto-immunity. Three immunity has been found, surface antigen (HBsAg)/HBsAb, core antigen (HBcAg)/HBcAb and e antigen(HBeAg)/HBeAb. As it is difficult to detect the core antigen in the serum, the other five are been done to diagnosing HBV. Hepatitis B “core ” antigen (HBcAg) is a major component of the viral structure. Antibodies to HBcAg (anti-HBc total antibody, and IgM) appear shortly after the appearance of HBsAg and persist for life both in persons who have recovered from a hepatitis B infection and in those who develop HBsAg-carrier status but in rare cases, a HBV infection can also run its course without the appearance of immunologically detectable anti-HBc (usually in immunosuppressed patients). Anti-HBc is a marker of acute, chronic or resolved HBV infection and screening for anti-HBc provides with information on the prevalence of the disease in different groups. In the absence of other hepatitis B markers (HBsAg-negative persons), anti-HBc may be the only indication of an existing hepatitis B viral infection.
