Prevention of Mother-to-Child (Perinatal) Transmission of Hepatitis B
This answer is incorrect. Although it is reasonable to check for evidence of prior HBV and immunity to HBV, the preferred screening test for that purpose would be antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBsAg), not anti-HBe. The hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) test is the preferred screening test to determine whether the mother is at risk of transmitting HBV to her child.
