hcv rt-pcr, quant

Jul 17, 2010

My Hepatitis Quantative were 222,110 IU/ML and my HCV log10 is 5.347. The reportable range for this assay is 43 to 69,000,000. What does this mean?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate why this test was obtained. The test result likely means that you have chronic HCV infection. That viral load level would be considered low and both of those numbers mean the same thing expressed in different math terms.
