Virologic Responses during Treatment of Hepatitis C

You answered:

A The patient experienced a partial response.

This answer is incorrect. A partial response is defined as a decrease in the HCV RNA level by at least 2 log10 from baseline at week 12, but remaining detectable at week 12. This patient demonstrated HCV suppression by week 12 and is therefore not a partial responder.

Choose another answer:

B The patient experienced a virologic relapse.
C The patient experienced a rapid virologic response.
D The patient experienced a null response.
