Spanish term or phrase: no se alcanzó a objetivar PCR
This is from a research article on the treatment of chronic hepatitis C with peginterferon and ribavirin.

En el grupo con G2 y G3, siete (87,5%) alcanzaron una RVS y uno falleció tras finalizar el tratamiento a pesar de haber logrado la negatividad de la carga viral a las doce semanas de tratamiento, no se alcanzó a objetivar PCR de las 24 semanas.

Many thanks.

it was not possible to detect PCR/PCR negative 24 weeks after treatment
Explanation:
I think literally this means

we did not manage to detect PCR after 24 weeks of treatment,

so my effort is

PCR negative

This is one of those awkward ones!
