HCV Testing

Apr 6, 2008

I had a potential exposure to HCV 2 weeks prior to both ELISA testing and HCV RNA quantitative (down to 50 copies)testing. Both came back negative. Is 2 weeks enough time to rule out HCV? I felt like I had symptoms within the first week. I am HIV pos.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would probably check the HCV tests one more time after a few weeks.

what is a high viral status
HEP B high viral load
