just a guess


Explanation:
o.b.B. = ohne besonderen Befund [Duden, WB der Abkürzungen]

If this is not a typographical error (which I assume it isn't) could imagine that the o.p.B = ohne pathologischen Befund
However, this is only a guess -- I have nothing to back this up, but maybe it'll help steer you in the right direction

no path.


Explanation:
As in No Pathology - keine Pathologie, meaning ohne pathologischen Befund. See the URL for a good example of how this is used.

Cheerio,
