Hepatitis C is a virus spread through contact with infected blood.

The hepatitis C antibody blood test is the most commonly ordered screening for hepatitis C virus (HCV). This test looks for antibodies that develop in response to an infection. These antibodies are usually detectable at 4-12 weeks or greater after exposure. Results for this test are quantitative and will indicate a reactive (positive), nonreactive (negative), or in some cases, equivocal result. Hepatitis C is a virus spread through contact with infected blood. Nearly 80% of hepatitis C infections develop into chronic hepatitis. The number of people worldwide with chronic hepatitis C infections is around 150 million. Chronic hepatitis C infections can lead to serious health complications such as cirrhosis and liver cancer. Many HCV infections display no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, some of the most common include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark-colored urine, grey feces, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). Hepatitis C can be spread in a variety of ways. Some of the most common include intravenous drug use, improperly cleaned or sterilized tattoo and piercing equipment, sexual contact, blood transfusions, and from an infected mother to her infant during birth. The hepatitis C antibody blood test is mostly ordered as routine screening. This test can be ordered by anyone who is concerned they have been exposed to the HCV regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms or not.
