Spanish term or phrase: HBAc, HVC
"los marcadores de hepatitis(HBsAg, HBAc, HVC) negativos"

From a medical study. I know HVC can mean "hepatitis C", but is that what it means in this case? And how about HBAc?

  -> ¡Buena pregunta! Si en la abreviatura del texto original faltara una "c", sí que podría tratarse del "HBcAc", anticuerpo (IgM) contra el core del virus de hepatitis B. En inglés sería: * HBcAb*. Muchas gracias, Karla :-)
