What does it mean undetectable? is it undetectable in PCR test or HCV antibodies test negative or positive? If HCV (HCV antibodies) are negative please let me know........i need it, i really need it.

@amer (post #1),

Just to reiterate, I think what denny (the original poster), may have meant - in terms of it being non-detectable - is that "hepatitis C was not found in any diagnosis they performed after 3 weeks of treatment from Sofosbuvir + Ribavirin; however they wont know for sure if he's completely in the clear until after 3 months of treatment have passed." I imagine any reasonable approach to diagnosing hepatitis C would include applicable tests such as PCR/HCV. That's how I understood it anyways, but if denny would be so kind as to post back and clarify these details, then that would be great.

Hope this helps!
