Response from Dr. Holodniy

The first value indicates the absolute copy number and the second value is the log copy number. They mean the same thing, but are expressed in different mathematical terms. That is a relatively low HCV viral load copy number and indicates chronic infection with HCV.

T-cells, VlL and a few other things
