A 39-year-old member asked:

How much time is required for the antibodies to leave your system after you received the treatment for hepatitis c?

Most likely never: If you received treatment for hepatitis c, which lasts for many months, and complete it, the most important thing to measure is the viral titer. This will determine if your treatment was successful or not. Antibodies are your bodies reaction to the infection, and may persist for a lifetime.
