Hepatitis C Virus Antibody Blood Test

Item # LC140659

This test will reveal if you've been exposed to the hepatitis C virus (HVC) by looking for hepatitis C antibodies, which appear in the blood two to four months after infection. Positive test results need to be followed up with a physician.

Hepatitis C is an infectious disease affecting the liver, caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV). The infection is often asymptomatic, but once established, it can progress to chronic scarring of the liver (fibrosis and cirrhosis).

Antibodies to Hepatitis C appear in the blood two to four months after infection. Once infected with the hepatitis C virus, nearly 8 in 10 untreated people remain infected for life, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1 It is recommended that positive results be confirmed through use of HCV RNA (qualitative) testing using a methodology called NAA and should be discussed with your doctor.

Instructions

Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
