About the Test
HCV is a viral infection that affects the liver. It is not understood why, but some people can be infected with HCV and fight off the infection; others will carry the virus for the rest of their lives, without symptoms, until liver disease is advanced. Infection triggers production of specific antibodies to fight illness. The Hepatitis C Test checks for HCV-specific IgG antibodies in your blood to determine whether you have been infected with HCV. A positive test result does not necessarily indicate you have an active HCV infection; additional testing with a Hepatitis C RNA Test is required to confirm active infection.1 This confirmation test measures the level of HCV in the blood (viral load). The level of Hepatitis C RNA can tell you if you have a current or past HCV infection. This information can help your healthcare provider interpret your results and monitor your response to treatment.
