Hepatitis C Antibody Blood Test

Hepatitis C is a virus that can infect and damage the liver. In most cases, it is contracted through exposure to blood (usually from sharing contaminated needles while injecting drugs or, before 1992, through a blood transfusion), through sex with an infected person, via healthcare occupational exposure and it can also be passed from mother to baby.

Hepatitis C antibody is produced by the body in response to exposure to the hepatitis C virus (HCV). The most common test for HCV looks for these antibodies in your blood.

Hepatitis C Antibody Blood Test

Hepatitis C infection is a common cause of chronic liver disease . About 65-75% of those infected will develop chronic hepatitis, and about 20-30% of those develop cirrhosis. HCV testing is recommended in the following cases: 

  • If you have ever injected illegal drugs 
  • If you received a blood transfusion or organ transplantation before mid-1992* 
  • If you have received clotting factor concentrates produced before 1987 
  • If you were ever on long-term dialysis 
  • For children born to HCV-positive women 
  • For health care, emergency medicine, and public safety workers after needlesticks, sharps, or mucosal exposure to HCV-positive blood 
  • For people with evidence of chronic liver disease

* The blood supply has been monitored in the UK since mid-1992, and any units of blood that test positive for HCV are rejected for use in another person. The current risk of HCV infection from transfused blood is less than 1 case per million transfused units.
