HCV Liver Fibrosis GenotypR test

Did anyone try this test?

The first genomic clinical test to predict progression to liver fibrosis or cirrhosis for Hepatitis C Virus patients. It provides physicians and patients the information they need to select the most appropriate course of therapy.

yes i had the test. this $500 test is worthless if you ask me. all that money for the results to tell someone that they have a 50/50 (my result) chance developing cirrhosis in patients after an average of 25 yrs of infection. almost the same info you can get from the CDC website statistics.  you are better off seeing what your damage (if any) you have at this time. NOTHING but God can predict how this disease will progress.

If you look at the bottom of the page you will see a link to Clinical Care Options. At clinical care there is a chart that will help explain when this test is useful. My take on it is that if  someone is stage 0 or 1 it may help to determine if they can wait to treat. If stage 2 or higher they treat anyway so the test is of little value if the biopsy show higher stages
