viral load

May 18, 2003

what is the normal viral load a person should have

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There is no "normal" viral load. Those who are uninfected, will have NO detectable viral load. Those who are HIV infected can have a viral load that ranges from < 50 copies/ml to over 1 milllion copies/ml. Viral loads < 1,000 are considered low and viral loads > 100,000 are considered high.
