Apr 20, 2009

I am a paramedic and frequently get exposed to blood. Recently after blood donation, i got a letter that informed me that i had Hep C antibody detected in my blood, but RIBA and HCV NAT test did not detect any thing. Do i need any more testing or should i be confident that i had false positive test. please reply!

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your RIBA is all you need. Your ELISA was a false positive test. You don't need any more testing.

Be certain to be vaccinated against Hepatitis B.
