Antibody-Lymph Node Relationship

Feb 14, 2002

If one has persistent generalized swollen lymph glands beginning 8 months post exposure but has tested negative for HIV antibodies at 11 months post exposure, can it be assumed that something other than HIV is causing the PGL, i.e., would PGL at this point almost guarantee that the body was fighting HIV with antibodies?

Thanks. You do a great job!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes and yes.
