Producing antibodies to different diseases

Aug 24, 2003

Dr. Holodniy, could you please clarify such thing as if a person was able to produce antibodies to some non-HIV disease (Lyme, EBV) does it mean that he would be able to produce antibodies to HIV (unless the man from Utah who was ELISA negative until AIDS stage) ? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This case was extremely rare. This patient had been infected for many years, prior to coming to medical attention and was at end stage. It is likely that when he had early infection, if he had been tested, it would have been positive.

what are some reasons for elevated liver enzymes?
