Viral Load and antibodies
Mar 15, 2003
I am curious if the viral load during the seronegative window is related to the timing of seroconversion. In other words, does the body start generating antibodies faster if the viral load becomes higher, or is it just a body clock independent of the viral load? I asuume no treatment has been administered yet.

There is not alot of data to answer this question. But higher viral loads, for whatever reason, probably signals the body to a quicker immune response and antibody formation.
