DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 28, 2020--

This report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted HCV epidemiology in the 7MM, i.e., the United States, EU5 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.

HCV is diagnosed based on the patient's medical history, a physical exam, and blood tests. If a viral infection is confirmed, doctors may suggest additional tests to check the condition of the liver.

Initial testing for the diagnosis of hepatitis C infection uses serologic assays that detect human antibodies generated as a response to HCV infection. Blood tests for HCV include screening tests for antibodies to the HCV virus, HCV RNA test, Genotype test, etc.

In Chronic HCV, doctors may recommend additional tests to find out how much liver damage the patient has, or to rule out other causes of liver disease. These tests may include blood tests, Imaging Tests (Transient elastography, Ultrasound, MRI, and CT Scan), and Liver function Tests (ALT, AST, ALP, and total bilirubin). If the liver is damaged due to inflammation, enzymes pass out of the liver into the bloodstream, making ALT and AST levels higher than normal. The doctor may also recommend a liver biopsy if blood tests or imaging studies suggest the patient might have a liver problem. A biopsy can determine the extent of scarring, or fibrosis, in a liver affected by viral hepatitis.
