Antigen-antibody Interactions:

• In the beginning, patient is in a state of antigen excess; Ab development has not yet begun.

• Then comes the equivalence zone: Abs are produced and bind to antigens, so neither Abs nor antigens are detected in blood.

• Finally comes the Ab excess zone; more-than-necessary Ab is produced.

Eg., Hepatitis B Infection:

• HBsAg and HBeAg antigens freely detected in blood.

• Then comes the window period: Abs are produced and bind to antigens, so neither Abs nor antigens are detected in blood.

• Finally comes the Ab excess zone; HBsAb and HBeAb excess rise in blood.
