HCV qualitative test

Mar 11, 2006

After 24 week HCV Coopegus/Pegasys treatment virus load went down from 1.5 mil to <10. Does it make sense to have a qualitative test and if yes what kind?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It sounds like you have had a great response to HCV treatment. You will need a followup viral load 6 months or so after treatment has been completed to determine if you have had a sustained response. You can discuss this with your gastroenterologist.
