Can I say im clear
Dec 7, 2008

I did a Hepatitis C Antibody Test at 11.5 weeks - negative and a Hepatitis C PCR test at 14.5 weeks - negative. With both these tests combined can I conclusivly say I am negative.

Response from Dr. McGovern

With a negative HCV PCR test - which is a sensitive test for virus itselft- at 14.5 weeks, I would be happy to say yes you are in the clear.

How long does the vaccination last for(Hepatitis A)?
Cirrhosis caused by HBV or HBC
