reactive hep c
Oct 12, 2007

I have hep c. I have been in remission for 7 yrs. Had a recent blood test and the word reactive came up. Can u tell me what this means?

Response from Dr. McGovern

A reactive antibody just means you were infected in the past. Even if your infection is cured (eg, no more virus in your blood after treatment) the antibody will still be reactive.
