In brief: Hepatitis C virus

Sometimes it's not possible to determine the genotype of this virus, which thus makes the expected response to treatment more uncertain.
This is a 'slippery virus' -there are 11 major genotypes (designated 1-11), and many subtypes (a, b, c, etc.) A hepatologist (GI subspecialist) or an ID doctor who works with Hep C patients can help you. You'll need an established relationship for treatment...
