viral load
Apr 27, 2009

hello Doc, is it high having viral load 61 copy, and what could be the stage active or dormant?

thanks in advance

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am not sure if you are referring to hepatitis B or C - either way that is is very low viral load. Any detectable virus infers activity. However, a low viral load is easy to suppress if there is a need for treatment (eg, significant hepatitis)
