Blood Work Help

Going crazy with blood work results!!  Had blood work April 2011 which showed HCV antibody 1.8 with a Negative PCR qualitative and a Negative PCR quantitative.  Had repeat blood work 9 months later, December 2011, which showed HCV Ab 1.1 with RIBA Result Negative, HCV PCR qualitative Negative and HCV PCR quantitative Negative.  In researching and reading some posts on this forum it seems to be a false positive.  Can anyone offer their opinion on this.

Thank you!! .

RIBA Result Negative, HCV PCR qualitative Negative and HCV PCR quantitative Negative.  In researching and reading some posts on this forum it seems to be a false positive.

That would appear to be the proper conclusion, RIBA test is HCV antibody specific.

In any case you do not have HCV congrats

I am not up on the lingo however it looks to me as if you were exposed but your body fought it off so you do not have it.  You could ask your doctor about this.
Good luck to you
