    Study Objective Contact
    Testing for Hepatitis C in the Screening Colonoscopy Population [LCID Study Number: 2014-085] The purpose of this study is to help determine the efficacy of screening the outpatient colonoscopy population for asymptomatic cases of HCV infection in patients born between 1945 and 1965. This study will involve only a one-time visit to the laboratory for one blood specimen that will be tested for the presence or absence of the antibody to the Hepatitis C Virus. If an antibody is detected, the same blood sample will be used to test for the presence of the actual virus. If blood testing confirms the presence of Hepatitis C infection, the patient will be contacted to schedule an appointment in the Gastroenterology Department to discuss further care.
