convert to log 10 copies or IU/ml

Mar 29, 2009

In HBV DNA viral load estimation, what is the equivalent of IU/ml = log10 IU/ml or log10 copies/ml?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

1 IU is equivalent to about 5 HBV DNA copies depending on the assay. 1 log = 10 copies or 10 IU, 2 log = 100 copies or 100 IU, 3 log = 1000 copies or 1000 IU.
