immune response via a vis viral load detactability

Sep 8, 2002


1) Does weak immune response vs. HIV during acute infection cause virus to not need to replicate quickly or to high (ie., detectable in serum)levels? 2) In a weak immune response, would viral load not need to replicate quickly in acute infection and therefore not be detectable in serum via PCR assay? 3) Or would a weak immune/antibody response allow virus to replicate to enormously high levels during acute infetcion?
