|ELISA negative, PCR undetectable, CD4 370?
Feb 14, 2001
Possible exposure a year and a half ago. I have been experiencing symptoms similar to HIV for little over a year. My Elisa and PCR test were negative at three months and tested negative at one year with the Elisa; however, my CD4 count is currently at 370. Is there a possibility that a PCR cannot pick up the virus at three months? Is it a possibility that it would not pick up the virus at 11 months while taking a high dose of Vitiman C (3000 mg)? Is it possible not to produce antibodies after a year and show up undetectable on a PCR test?
