HCV RNA Result's meaning

Nov 30, 2008

I am from Burma, Myanmar. My wife have found HCV test positive and when I test RNA, it shows as follow: Hepatitis C Virous RNA(TaqMan) 3.68 x 10^6 IU/mL (6.57 Log)

Assay dynamic range : 43 IU/mL to 6.90 x 10^7 IU/mL (estimated 116 copies/mL - 1.90 x 10^8 copies/mL) Lower Detection Limit: 15 IU/mL (estimated 40 copies/mL) Equivocal range : 15 IU/mL - 43 IU/mL

Kindly hlep me to translate these result. Too dangerous for my wife? And she is 34 year old and 4 month pregnant .

Please help us...

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The test means that she has 3.68 million copies of HCV per milliliter of blood. This is about average for someone with chronic HCV infection.
