What is the Hepatitis C virus? Hepatitis C is a viral infection causing the inflammation of the liver; and, sometimes leading to serious liver damages. When a person becomes infected, he or she becomes at high risk of numerous complications such as needing a liver transplant and even death. Hepatitis C is highly contagious and can spread when in contact with an infected person’s blood or bodily fluids. Since there are no vaccines to protect us from hepatitis C, taking precautions is necessary to be on the safe side. These include stop using illicit drugs, watching out when going for a body piercing or tattoo, and always engaging in protected sex keeping in mind that a monogamist relationship has very low risks. The results of this test are either detected or not detected. A positive/detected test indicates that the person is either infected now or have been infected with the hepatitis C virus. If the test gives a negative/not detected result; then, there is no infection detected: the person is not and was never infected with the virus. Keep in mind that hepatitis C, unlike any other hepatitis, does not have the vaccine. So, our immune system cannot build an effective immune response to the virus itself. As a result, if someone was infected with hepatitis C, he can be re-infected again upon exposure. Those who are infected with this virus can potentially spread it to others.
