Infection without Antibody production?

Oct 31, 2000

Dear Doctor,

I have checked through past post for an answer for this question, but was unable to find one. Without HIV antibodies production in the normal case of, 3 months most, 6 months a few, and beyond 6 months very rare, What is the impact on these rare few who aren't, for unknown reasons, producing antibodies, but are indeed infected. Very low CD4 and CD8 counts, lower than someone who has coverted earlier? Increased viral loads?


Response from Dr. Holodniy

No serial followup on these proported cases to answer the question. MH

Is It Possible???
With high viral load should doctor wait?
