Window period

Mar 9, 2001

In your expert opinion how accurate do you think the combination of NAT,P24 and antibody testing would be 30 day's post exposure. I recently read that it woud be 99.9 if someone knew their exact date of possible exposure.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although there are no large controlled studies, the observational studies would suggest that those numbers were about right.

Thank you for all of your hard work!
