|Follow up question--Aug 7--please it is important
Aug 27, 2002
Dear Dr. Bob,
Glad to have you back...you were really missed on this forum.
You said in the Aug 7 post that a 3 month test should be indeed conclusive. Does the generation of the test being used have any bearing on this statement ? I need your opinion, and the fact that you are an immunologist, will add much more weight to it.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Nice to be back, although I must admit Alaska was gorgeous. Certainly the newer tests are slightly more refined in picking up rarer strains and potential cases of HIV seroconversion, but my statement still holds. In most cases, a 3-month antibody test is conclusive (despite the generation of the antibody being used). Hope that helps.
Strange fatigue like symptoms..
