VIRAL LOAD NO GOOD AFTER FIRST FEW MONTHS! PLEASE CLARIFY

Mar 1, 2001

In one of your older answers you state that there is a danger in interpreting the results of an RNA PCR taken after the first few months as negative as one's viral load can be <400 after that point. In yet another recent response you state that there is "essentially zero" chance in a person who tested antibody negative (3 months post exposure) and RNA PCR undetectable (<400) two weeks after the antibody negative test. In my case the negative antibody test was at 16 weeks, and RNA PCR at 18 weeks. Should I be concernedPlease clarify. Thank you for your help!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I stand by my answers. I will not answer questions about specific cases.
