Basket Case- does lymphoma affect HIV antibodies?
Mar 2, 2001

If a person had lymphoma or the other cancer coincidentally happening at the same time they were in the window period for HIV, yet they still had not gone poz(but fear the worst) could that possibility delay the "USUAL" time (3 months) when antibodies are produced? Thank you -from the Basket Case

Response from Dr. Dezube

Although it is theoretically possible for lymphoma and other cancers to affect antibody production, in reality, this usually does not occur. In other words, in general, patients with these cancers do not experience a delay in the usual time for antibodies to be produced. BD.
