Most study participants achieved viral suppression with minimal changes in kidney function or bone density.
Women who had both hepatitis C and HIV were most likely to pass HCV on to their newborns.
Even without HBV immunoglobulin, no infants acquired hepatitis B from mothers with a high viral load.
The new drug reduced HDV viral load and lowered liver enzyme levels in people with hepatitis B and D.
There are a variety of hepatitis C treatments offered for all genotypes, with various stages of liver damage.
A recent Swedish study defined a low-level detectable viral load as between 50 and 999.
This holds true regardless of how long they’ve had HIV or whether they’re on antiretrovirals.
What does a non-detectable hepatitis C viral load mean? Can hep C come back?
New hepatitis C direct-acting antivirals are very effective, and a detectable viral load before the final test isn’t always cause for alarm.
A positive hepatitis C test does not necessarily prove that someone has hep C. What other tests are needed?
Being coinfected with hepatitis C and having a higher HIV viral load are also associated with such a risk according to a recent study.
There are three parts to testing for hepatitis C virus (HCV).
A hepatitis C antibody test is not enough to determine if someone has hepatitis C.
I’ve been thinking about blood tests. I’m on holidays, I have to do something! Do we over-test? I’ve been pondering this question.
Earlier this week I went and had a sample of blood removed from my arm for my 12 week post treatment viral load test.
I got my viral load results back today. They were good. It makes waiting the next 9 weeks easier.
