I have a positive antibody but a negative HCV RNA virus c genotype 4 after one year same result i didn't take any medication before or now ?
Hi, my HCV RNA PCR is 1730256 iu/ml.And genotype is 3 what medication I should discuss with my doctor , what are the options i've please advise.Thank you.
Many options.: This is an exciting time for new treatments for hepatitis c. There are many recent new studies and new medications which have been approved. I would recommend that you see a good liver specialist who treats hepatitis c on a regular basis and ask him what the latest treatments are, and what is most appropriate for your situation. It is very important to get it treated, if recommended. Good luck. ...Read more
Good ?: But fortunately these drugs are pretty specifi to a target. ...Read more
6 past inconclusive anti-hcv tests,2 recent negative ones,1 inconclusive last week.do not do drugs but risky sex.Do I have hcv? Doc will not do rna
No need, no risk: If your doctor thought you were at risk and might have HCV, I'm sure she would have done an RNA test. And it sounds like you're not at risk. Contrarly to popular beliefs and some online claims, HCV is not a proved STD except by traumatic (bloody) anal practices in gay men. Frequency of infection is no higher in heterosexual partners of people with HCV, and no higher if 100 vs 3 lifetime partners. ...Read more
How common is sexual transmission of hepatitis C?Had RNA test with lower limit of 15IU/ml, negative, never did drugs only sex w/multiple partners.
Hi, what are the antiviral drug for dengue virus spesifically the rna-dependant RNA polymerase as the potential target? Thanks
None yet: Dengue fever and its severe form, dengue hemorrhagic fever, have no cure nor vaccine. One path of research is to find a way to use nucleoside analogs to block the viral rna-dependent RNA polymerase (coded by ns5), which copies the viral genetic material. So far, no drug has been approved yet. Not sure if anyone has found and submitted such a drug to the fda (food and drug administration). ...Read more
Would REMICADE affect my negative HIV 4th gen combo test at 9 weeks after exposure? I heard it's immunosuppressive drug. I tested RNA at 9.7 weeks. I'm so worried about seroconversion and even hiv-2(since p24 is not detectable in hiv2 infection).
HIV test: Contrary to common beliefs, there are NO drugs that aler the reliability of the 4th generation (antigen-antibody) HIV tests. If any effect at all, immunosuppressive drugs might make the test MORE likely to detect infection sooner than otherwise. But inflximab (Remicade) makes no difference at all. Your negative 9 week result is 100% conclusive for HIV2 as well as HIV1. Don't have any more tests. ...Read more
Is a PCR RNA test for HIV the same as a nucleic acid test? A doctor has told me this is no more accurate than a DUO test after 28 days post exposure..
Too complex for a: Short answer. Dna provides the code for making proteins that carry out most of the functions in the body. Rna is the step between dna and protein. Briefly, dna is transcribed into rna; RNA is further processed to the right size and content and translated into proteins. Both dna and RNA also have complex regulatory functions. ...Read more
Explain why the accuracy of RNA transcription is not critical as the accuracy of DNA replication?
DNA vs RNA; does Genbank cover both DNA/RNA ID's? If Genabank is only DNA, where would I find a "database with RNA ID's?
