    Hepatitis B is a virus that infects the liver and can further lead to more health complications. This virus further spreads through blood, seminal fluid and vaginal secretions. Over a period of time, this virus can damage cells in the liver leading to cirrhosis and liver cancer. This virus has proteins called antigens on its surface that would cause the immune system to trigger more antibodies. These antigens are early signs of acute hepatitis B infection and can also indicate that the individual is suffering from chronic infection.
