What are hepatitis and hepatitis C antibodies?

The inflammation of the liver can lead to diseases such as scarring, cirrhosis, and cancer. Hepatitis can be caused because of auto-immune diseases, alcohol, or toxic substances. Hepatitis C is transmitted through blood to blood contact with someone infected with HCV.

Hepatitis C Antibodies are the antibodies produced by the immune system to fight the hepatitis C Antigens. Antibodies are the protective proteins produced by the immune system and also known as immunoglobulins. Antibodies are produced when any foreign substance or virus or bacteria enters the body. These foreign substances are known as antigens. Antibodies recognize and attach to the antigens in order to remove them from the body. There are five (5) subtypes of antibodies and they are IgG, IgM, IgA, IgD, IgE.

IgG provides long-term protection as it presents in the circulation for a long period after an antigen. IgM enhances the ingestion of cells by phagocytosis. IgA is also the first defense for intestine, lungs, and nose. They bind antigens to the microbes before they invade tissues and keep antigens in secretion and when secretion is expelled, antigens are also expelled. IgD helps in the induction of antibody production and presents on the surface of B-cells. IgE binds to the basophils and mast cells.

Why AHCV test is performed?

This test is performed to check Hepatitis C Antibodies IgG in the blood. The doctor may ask you to undergo this test if you are suffering from symptoms and conditions such as liver cancer, cirrhosis, jaundice, fever, dark urine, abdominal pain, joint pain, etc.

Mostly, this test is done along with other hepatitis antibody tests to confirm the diagnosis. This test is also done to detect the past HCV infections and to determine if an individual has developed immunity for past HCV infections.

How often HCV test should be performed?

This test should be done after 6-7 weeks of infection. If you have been diagnosed with HCV, your doctor may advise you to get this test done once in a year based on your clinical condition. If you are a healthy individual above the age of 35, your doctor may advise you to undergo this test either yearly or every other year.

How to prepare for the AHCV test?

Some medications may change the levels of antibodies in the blood and hence you are advised to inform all your current medications to the doctor prior to the test.
