Viral Load & Immune response

Nov 24, 2002

From reading numerous answers I understand that viral load after acute stage can be reduced down to undetectable in plasma by 2-3 months after infection. 3 Questions: 1)Is this common? 2)Would antibodies have to be present for this to occur? 3)Would someone with undectectble virus 3 months after infection(w/o meds) generally stay this way? I appreciate your insight-Thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

NO, YES, and perhaps.
