The way to determine whether HCV is in your body is to look for its RNA. HCV RNA is the genetic material that the virus uses to reproduce itself. Several different lab tests can be used to detect HCV RNA in the blood, as well as to measure the amount of the virus in your body (called the viral load).
All patients initiating HCV direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy should be assessed for HBV coinfection with HBsAg testing, and for evidence of prior infection with anti-HBs and anti HBc testing.
Prior to starting treatment, patients should be evaluated for potential drug-drug interactions with selected antiviral medications.
