Is this the right test for HIV?
Sep 13, 2001

Dear Doctor, I was take an Elisa test at two months and 3 months (90 days) after my risk. My tes was: DETERMINACION DE ANTICUERPOS ANTI VIH(HTLV-III/LAV)POR EL METODO INMUNOENZIMATICO(E.L.I.S.A) RESULTADO:NEGATIVO Is the same test? in the hospital the nurse tell me is for hiv-1 and hiv-2 Is correct? because are generations in the test, and my test don`t specify generations. (sorry for my bad english)

Thankyou for your help !

Response from Dr. Feinberg

This is the correct test, and should screen for both HIv-1 and HIV-2.

Could this be an opportunist infec???
