Hi 2b,

There are several different ways results are reported.

If a QUALITATIVE HCV RNA is requested the what you get back is a simple DETECTED/UNDETECTED

If a QUANTITATIVE HVC RNA is requested then the results may look like

< 15
Detected

<15
Undetected


N (where the <15 would go)
N=HCV RNA not detected

Where there is a <15 the is also often a < log 1.2 reported.

If you post the data bits of your results I will tell you what it means.

If it says undetected somewhere that means we can't see it (as well as it being <15)
YMMV

Hi Dr. Freeman, here's what mine said, and test was titled this:
"HEPATITIS C VIRAL RNA BDNA QUANTITATIVE"

HCV RNA BY PCR QUANT <15 IU/mL <15
Not Detected
HCV RNA BY PCR QUANT <1.18 log IU/mL <1.18
Not Detected


Please note:
Due to character limitations of some clients' LIS
systems, viral load values greater than 10 million are
reported using scientific exponential notation.
For example a result of 10 Million (10,000,000) is
reported as 10.0E6 IU/mL or copies/mL. If your LIS
will accept the number of characters required for
viral loads greater than 10 million, please contact
your local service representative to have this
reporting convention changed.
The method used in this test is Real-Time PCR
of the 5' UTR of the HCV genome.
This test was performed using the COBAS(R) AmpliPrep/
COBAS(R) TaqMan(R) HCV Test, v2.0.
GT 2b; since 80's, no prior tx, sofosbuvir and daclatasvir compounded from API's at Kingswood Pharmacy in Sydney, started tx nov 6,2015, undetected at 4 wks, UND at 8 weeks, UND at 1 week after EOT, UND at 4 weeks after EOT and UND at 8 weeks after EOT. " I feel GOOD!! I knew that I WOULD!"
Last Edit: 3 years 10 months ago by 2b.

That's undetected.

The < 15 and < log 1.18 (1.2) are not printed by many labs when it is undetected.

We do see

<15
Detected

Which means too low to count but still present.

Yours is too low to count AND can't see any.

It is zero.
YMMV
