Hep c antibody rest reactive, qualitative RNA PCR says no RNA material found. Do i need further tests or i can relax that I have cleared. ?
Polymerase chain reaction is a method of finding a specific piece of dna and copying it over and over again until there is enough to study. The technique allows a scientist to detect very small amounts of dna in a swab sample then reproduce enough of it to study it. It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more

Is it safe to stay on Suboxone after being diagnosed with hep c? So far no lft abnormalities, but HCV antibody positive. Pending PCR and viral load
Yes!: It is very safe--in fact, i would insist one of my patients stay on the suboxone especially if they were going to go through the interfuron therapy. It is bad enough trying to go off suboxone without having hepatitis or being on the interfuron! just make sure your doctor keeps up with your lft's. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hep c +, no viral load, RNA performed.Was told i cleared the virus 11years ago. In a new relationship. How do I explain this to my partner? Confused.

Hep C indeterminate result after 6+ months, 2 negative results, and inconclusive ones before that. Doc will not do pcr test. Do I Have hep c?
I had a needle stick and the pt was hep c +. I got the results of her PCR today and it was undetectable. Does that lessen my risk of contracting it?
Yes: But it does not exclude the possibility of your having become infected. Test yourself to make sure. Good luck and be careful. ...Read more
Hep C indeterminate result before 6+ months, 2 negative result within 6 months, 1 indeterminate last week. Doc will not do pcr test. Do I Have hep c?
I say no: I'm sorry you can't get a definitive test. The old antibody assays gave many tests like this, and folks like you usually proved not to have the bug on board. Why not relax? You're not a significant danger to your friends, even possible romantic partners. I trust you're not sharing needles. I think Hep C will be easy to cure for almost anyone soon enough if you DO prove to have it. Best wishes. ...Read more
If a person has hep c antibodies but a undetectable PCR is it gone or can it be in the body dormant? Can it reactivate?
Would a negative hep c antibody test at 14 weeks post possible exposure and a negative Hep c PCR at 18 weeks mean I don't have it?
Hepatitis c is a virus that replicates (makes copies of itself) in the human liver. People can be infected by exposure to even very small amounts of blood. Over 20 to 40 years it can cause scarring of the liver, and severe scarring is called cirrhosis. People can be tested for exposure with an antibody test. If that is positive, they need a test for the virus itself ...Read more
