Detect Hepatitis A Virus RNA (HAV RNA).

Clinical Information Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

The direct detection of HAV is a valuable tool in determining whether a patient undergoing therapeutic treatment has cleared the virus. It is also useful in determining whether blood or blood products are free of detectable HAV prior to distribution to patients. PCR is able to directly detect HAV RNA and does not rely on later markers such as antigens and antibodies that are not produced in newly infected individuals.
