What do these test numbers mean
« on: July 11, 2017, 12:39:17 pm »
I did a Hep C viral RNA, Quantitative bDNA test and i do not understand my results:

HCV  RNA, QN  BDNA     result  arrow pointing left 615  flag range same  IU/ml

HCV  RNA  QN, BDNA   result arrow pointing left 2.79    flag range same

I was diagnosed with Hep c years ago and then did a combo treatment and cleared the virus.  What does this recent test result mean?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome

What treatment did you use was it Interferon and ribavirin?

Not a clue what your result means. Maybe you could enter the entire result the exact text verbatim. Do you mean the math symbol < less than?

did it say something like

HCV  RNA, QN  BDNA <615  ref range  IU/ml

HCV  RNA  QN, BDNA   < 2.79 ref range same log IU/ml

This looks like an old type of test. I found a reference on another web page dated 2006 the question was:

Q: I picked up my results from my doctor. I didn't get an explanation. could u please tell me what my results mean ? 1st read hcv rna, qn bdna 446300 H ref range < 615 IU/ml 2nd read 5.65 h < 2.79 log IU/ml.

I am guessing the <615 and <2.79 are reference ranges for the test. In the example above there were other numbers with the persons viral load which was 446300 IU/ml H and 5.65 log IU/ml h.

Were there any other numbers on your result?

For reference this is my result from Sept 2014 before I was cured

HCV RNA BY RT-PCR, QUANT - Details

Component Results

Component                Your Value                            Standard Range

HCV RNA RT-PCR, QT        2422260 IU/mL                     See Notes IU/mL
HCV LOG 10                6.384 log10 IU/mL            See Notes log10 IU/mL

The quantitative range of the assay is 15 IU/mL to 100 million IU/mL
using COBAS(R) TaqMan(R) HCV test, v 2.0. The limit of detection (LOD)
and lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) for this assay is 15 IU/mL.
Results less than the quantitative range of the assay will be reported
as "HCV RNA detected, less than 15 IU/mL".

However my best recommendation is ask the doctor who ordered your test.

We here are not medical professionals we are a community of patients who come together for mutual support and sharing of information. We can offer our best guesses but cannot make a diagnosis of any medical condition.

Best of luck to you
