Hepatitis C Test Weeks
I think so: Nobody really knows the rate for late conversions as one never really knows what people are doing that might be risky after the reported exposure is done. If you've having obsessive thoughts about having hepatitis C and a nucleic acid test would reassure you, and you can afford it, then go for it. Best wishes. ...Read more

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
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?
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
Is LABCORP "Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Antibody Verification" test used as was used riba test for ruling out/in false positive hep C HCV antibody results?
It's complex.: The CMIA test checks for hepatitis B surface antigen, just one of the items necessary to confirm and classify a hepatitis B infection. Without the other results, it's not possible to be sure. If you're concerned, bring your complete hep profile to your doctor, who can determine with a physical exam and your results if you're likely to have hepatitis B. Good luck. ...Read more

Hep B Virus (HBV) DNA Qualitative (Detection) - COBAS TaqMan , Hep C RNA Detection by Taqman detection will be conclusive on 47 days? Any retest need?
No: Both Hepatitis B and C viruses may be detected 30 to 60 days after infection by antigen detection or 60-120 days with antibody testing. Direct HBV DNA and HCV RNA testing can potentially detect infection earlier, within 2-4 weeks after infection, so being tested at 47 days post-exposure with a negative nucleic acid test for both is very likely to be a true negative ...Read more
34 weeks pregnant.AST=33,ALT=52; Hep A positive; Hep B and Hep C negative. will my baby get infected? what will be complications in pregnancy?
Unsure: there are not many cases of hepatitis A being transmitted to the baby from the mom. Your liver function numbers are reassuring. Please discuss with your OB provider and whoever your child's provider will be. What is reassuring is that transmission from mom to baby is rare in the medical literature ...Read more
Hepb, c and Hiv1 PCR DNA qualitative and p24 antibody test negative. Do I have anything?.. test taken 21 days after unprotected oral exposure.
Can mean no Dis now.: This is apparently an RNA PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test that determines virus particles, or viral load in the body. This can be negative, but if an immunoblot test was positive, it would mean that you had an infection with hepatitis c and it was cleared. If the immunoblot was negative, then you never had an infection, and if you had an immunoassay and it was positive, then it was wrong. ...Read more
Hepatitis B and C: These viruses attack the liver and are typically acquired through some type of blood-exchange, although other routes can occur as well. You should really have a doctor 'follow' you for months if you had an exposure, since 10 days would not be enough time to rule out the possibility of infection. There is a hep B vaccine out there and now good treatments for hep C. Best to see an ID doc if you can. ...Read more
