479,000
May 27, 2006

i have persistently normal liver function labs, biopsy very mimimal inflamation. I check my virus status every year. my virus copies used to run just under a million.(in 2000-2001) My last lab (2006) shows 479,000 copies....but my Dr said the assays (?) readings are always changing and it's about the same. Am i any worse off?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I agree with your doctor. You can't read too much into small changes like that. Also HCV RNA levels do not correlate with disease.
