HCV RNA QUANT, PCR Test Results
Oct 28, 2012

I was just diagnoised a week ago and am very scared. My test results were over 300 million. Will treatment be effective? Where can I go online to find information I can comprehend?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That HCV viral load is quite high. There are additional blood tests and perhaps a liver scan that a liver specialist will obtain to determine the possible damage that may have occurred in the liver and what treatment will be effective. Treatment can be quite effective. This website has good basic information about HCV infection and treatment.
