HBV QN PCR Value Question
Jul 15, 2012
I got Hepatitis B from a blood transfusion 30 years ago. My HBV QN PCR level is now just over 3,000,000 mIU/mL. What is the significance of this value? Is there a range for this level?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
The range of HBV is around 20 IU to 100 million IU/mL. Your value is in the average range. I suggest you discuss your results with a liver specialist to determine if treatment is indicated at this point.
