Please answer

Aug 11, 2002

Hi Doc

I know that Igm Antibodies are pruduced during the initial infection and Igg later on. My question is How long after infection are Igg antibodies produced??

Thanks so much

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Both are produced during acute HIV infection. IgM antibodies are produced first, but are followed in days by IGG antibodies.

Methotrexate and HIV Meds
Hep c pegintron
