Podria pensarse que un resultado negativo para el HBsAg permite descartar la infeccion por VHB, pero se debe tener presente que puede existir un periodo en el curso de la infeccion en el que ya ha desaparecido el HBsAg y aun no han aparecido los respectivos anticuerpos; tal periodo se conoce como ventana inmunologica y el unico marcador de infeccion detectable durante el es el anticuerpo contra el HBcAg.
