HCV RNA TEST (TAQ MAN)
Apr 15, 2012
Hi Dr.Mark, Recently my father has undergone a HCV RNA Quantitative test and the result was
HCV Viral Load by TAQ MAN: 182IU/ML
The test method was "HCV RNA Quantitative - COBAS Amplirep/COBAS TAQMAN 48.
Can you please let me know what is the stage of infection.
Thanks and Regards

You don't indicate why the test was performed. That is a very low, but positive HCV viral load result, and likely means chronic infection with HCV. You need to consult with a liver specialist to see if further tests and/or treatment is indicated at this time.
