riba test
Aug 5, 2006

Dear Dr. M.,

1 very short q.

Does a combination of weak + antibody,1.0 cutoff, and neg Riba mean I am neg for Hcv antibody? I had this result 35 weeks after a low risk exposure for hep c. I know many others have qs for you as well so don't feel as though you have to answer mine.

You are wonderful to help so many.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I wish I could answer everybody's questions! They are all so good.

Yes you can be reassured that you do NOT have hepatitis C. The RIBA test is very accurate.
