HCV (Hepatitis C Virus)
HCV is a "silent" disease. Most people with HCV have no symptoms. They can be infected for years or even decades before symptoms show up. The HCV is a small, enveloped, single-stranded, positive-sense RNA virus. This virus can replicate both in liver cells and lymphocytes, hence affecting hepatic system as well as immune system. HCV is responsible for chronic infection in liver and may leads to liver failure. This test is done to confirm HCV diagnosis when viral loads are potentially very low, e.g. in immunosuppressed or immunoincompetent individuals, and when patients have elevated aminotransferases with indeterminate HCV antibody tests. Genotype identification is important in HCV patients, as it helps to choose treatment.
