Question on initial immune response
Oct 14, 2002
I know there is much variance with this but based on you expert opinion, what are the average viral load after acute infection. What is the likely hood of ones initial immune response knocking the virus down to undectable?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Average viral loads are very high (>100,000) and can persist for many days to weeks at this level. The likelihood of becoming undetectable in the absence of treatment is small.
