impact of MS on HIV test accuracy?
Mar 5, 2001

If you had a previous diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and it attacks the t-cells would that mechanism have anything to do with a delay in the window period of antibody formation? I am currently negative at 5 months. This last month -testing to 6 months is destroying me-please help! thank you Dr. Judith

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Having MS should not interfere with the HIV test.

HIV through fellatio?
pneumocystis carinii pneumonia
