Aims: Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) has infected more than million hundreds of people worldwide. Hence, a high rate of morbidity and mortality caused by liver-related diseases is due to HBV infection. However, a strong and effective treatment should be based on an accurate and correct diagnostic method. Hence, the present research provided a multidimensional study comparing and analyzing patients’ molecular and serological tests results.
Materials & Methods: In this research, the HBV DNA molecular tests results were studied by examining patients’ gender, age, and HBsAg strip results.
Findings: Among the female patients (29 persons) studied in this research, 55.1% were positive for HBV DNA and HBsAg strip tests, and 17.3% were negative for both tests. Also, among the male patients  (44 persons), 65.9% were positive, and 6.8% were negative for both tests.
Conclusion: The present study results shed light on the correlation between the HBV DNA and HBsAg tests. Also, the significance of HBV DNA tests was highlighted for particular diagnostic purposes and for the differentiation and interpretation of the pathophysiological conditions of patients with hepatitis B.
