DIAGNOSTICS OF VIRAL HEPATITIS - description of the tests

WZW, i.e. viral hepatitis, colloquially called "jaundice", is an infectious disease, caused by hepatotropal viruses (HAV, HBV, HCV, HDV, HEV, HGV, TTV). The name for this group of viruses arises from the fact that their primal target in the organism are liver cells, called hepatocytes.

342 Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) – quality + quantity, Real-Time PCR

This test is a modification of the test no. 341 and it focuses on detecting the DNA of the EBV virus (Epstein-Barr). A diagnostic test gives an opportunity for a very sensitive, fast and focused detection of the EBV virus infections. The test defines the number of virus copies in the blood, which allows estimating the viremia status.

341 Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) – quality, Real-Time PCR

The test detects DNA of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which belongs to the group of herpes-viruses, one of most common viruses. Most people go through infection without any symptoms. In some cases, it may cause infectious mononucleosis. The EBV virus infects salivary glands, in which it reproduces attacking b-lymphocytes. People may suffer from mononucleosis at any age, but it is most frequent among people of 15-30 age. Mononucleosis symptoms can be non-specific and may resemble other infections (streptococcus angina, suppurative meningitis, measles or German measles).

332 CMV (cytomegaloviral disease) – quality Real-Time PCR

The test is aimed at detecting DNA of CMV virus (Human Cytomegalovirus). CMV is a virus from the group of human herpes-viruses. For most healthy humans, infections with CMV are not harmful and do not manifest themselves with acute symptoms or any long-term health consequences. Occasionally, there may be infection symptoms in form of mononucleosis, long-lasting fever, or a benign hepatitis.

307 Virus HCV (WZW type C) – quality + quantity, Real-Time PCR

This test is a modification of test no. 306 and it consists  of detecting the presence and marking the number of RNA copies of a virus HCV. The test  recognizes the number of HCV virus copies in blood and indicates the viremia status. The Real Time PCR method is the only method used for monitoring the treatment progress of WZW type C.
