Blip what does it mean

Sep 8, 2002

Dear Expert, I have recently went above detection to 330 vl. I changed no drugs and had previously undetectable for years. I asked to repeat the test and it has come back as being undetectable, Are blips a warning of further problems to come? Is this an indication of up coming resitance? Did I just not absorbe the drugs properly? Could the lab have produced and error. I am curious if there is info out there about blips. thanks,w

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Blips are seen in many people. Short-term (12-24 month) data suggests they are not a sign of treatment failure. However, as longer term data becomes available, this finding might change.
