Hi friends,

I was hoping someone could help me out with deciphering blood tests my Viet. Vet friend got back.
He's been on tx for 4 wks.
I don't understand the jargon! :

HCV Quantitative RNA 1.54 x I0 E2 IU/mL
HCV Log 10 RNA 2.19 IU/mL

Does this mean he still has hep? :(

He's a GT 3.
2 transplants.
Cirrhosis.
He says now though, he's feeling quite good.

Hope someone can help, please?

Thanks & good luck to everyone. :)

His viral load is 154 so yes he still has detectable virus.

GT3s respond slower, and so do cirrhotics. It's not a great result, but it's not a bad result either.

He will be on 24 weeks and it's still early days.
YMMV

OK, well that's ok, sounds like it's working on him :)

Yes he's doing 24 wks.

Not sure what his VL was before TX because they refused to do a VL on him.

Anyway, thanks so much Dr J
