Advia hep.C antibody +, HCV RNA -. 3 months later Architect hep C Ab -, HCV RNA -. 2 Hep C Ab Verification tests -.Is Advia hepC Ab test false positiv

Without more info: and only the data you submitted in your question, I would put it together the way you did: the first Advia hepC Ab test was a false positive. I presume other experts who arranged your follow-up testing have suggested the same interpretation. Stay well:) ...Read more

Window for hcv ab test and hcv rna test?

Window for hcv ab test and hcv rna test?

HCV: Nowadays with polymerase chain reaction technology it is making "window" periods a less discussed issue. In my practice if I suspected a recent infection (say days to weeks old)..this test would show virons in your blood. Once this virus hits your bloodstream it explodes exponentially. Some people are fortunate that their bodies contain the infection..most do not. ...Read more

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Do I have HBV?

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative.  Do I have HBV?

Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus. If her Hep B virus PCR is negative, that means the lab does not find the virus's DNA (genes). If the core antibody is reactive that means her immune system REMEMBERS being infected with Hep B. She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more

Can i transplant kidny  with negative HCV RNA (pcr)  .And positive HCV anti body. Thanks?

May be: Do you mean to ask, "am i a suitable kidney donor?". It depends on rest of your health and markers for infectious diseases. If you are otherwise healthy you could certainly donate to a person who is already sero-positive for hep c. ...Read more

Acute hepatitis A: These data are difficult to follow, but i think these labs mean the following: you have chronic hepatitis b (hbsag+) and got acute hepatitis a on top of that. Your liver enzymes are now returning to normal. If this is true, you will not get hepatitis a again, but need evaluation for hepatitis b. ...Read more

HBV test results: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative.  Need any medication or vaccine?

Excellent question: and your story stumps many a doctor, often! :) a lot of the recommendations depend on - are you someone with risk factors for HBV? is this the first time that it has been checked? are your liver enzymes normal? are you about to undergo any procedures/ treatments that could put you at risk for HBV? If you have no sig risk factors, yes, I'd vaccinate you if there's potential for exposure. ...Read more

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen  ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6)  what are implications?

Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

You carry hep B: I am assuming you feel well and this was a surprise finding. There are millions of people like yourself. You will require lifelong health care for it unless / until a means of eradicating it is found. You pose no danger to a partner who is immunized. ...Read more

Reactivated EBV 9 months after first infection. Could i be immunodeficient? Antibody count: 65 ab VCA igm; 53 ea ab igg; 431 ab VCA igg; 289 ebna igg.

Reactivated EBV 9 months after first infection. Could i be immunodeficient? Antibody count: 65 ab VCA igm; 53 ea ab igg; 431 ab VCA igg; 289 ebna igg.

No: Unfortunately ebv stays alive forever in one's lymphocytes and can get activated easily in susceptible people without known immunodeficiency. However you may call that an immunodeficiency given that all people have been infected with it yet only few would have recurrent ebv problem. ...Read more

Recent infection: Positive HbSAg and IgM anti HbC suggest recent infection, but that does not mean it would not become chronic. Your brother needs to be monitored by a physician for proper treatment. ...Read more
