HIV consentrations in body fluids
Jun 2, 2001
I teach a HIV Prevention Counselor Training class. A participant asked if the consentration of HIV is greater in semen than blood if you looked at equal amounts, e.g. cubic centimeter.

No, the concentration in blood and cells is always higher than in semen, aproximately 2.5 times at any given point.
