Re: 30 month seroconversion

Dec 8, 2000

Dear Doc,

The person who posted "delayed seroconversion" mentions testing only at one point in time. How can he/she conclude that it took 30 months to seroconvert? A negative in 1998 doesn't rule out the possibility that subsequent risky behavior resulted in Hiv infection. Did this person ever have the standard serology ie. Hiv-1 Elisa / Western blot, at the recommended intervals? He/she should step forward and clarify the situation rather than carelessly posting a conclusion that will probably devastate recovering "worried wells". Please post this note to clear the air and/or offer your ideas about the purported "30 month" seroconversion.
