hep C antigen vs. antibody
Has anbody every heard of  testing positive for hep C antigen and negative for the antibody?

This is the first test I have had done (U.S.) and this is what the nurse told me.  

Everything I read says that the test in the U.S. test only for antibody...  still waiting on other blood tests to confirm, just getting nervous and wanted other's insight.

the print out read  "  Hepatitis C        positive                          negative"

does this make sense?

thanks,
