|How rare is it for treatment naive HIVers to have an undetectable VL a year or more after infection?
Oct 11, 2003
If someone cannot produce HIV antibodies in response to infection, would you expect to see higher than usual viral loads a year or 16 months later?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
It is relatively rare, certainly < 5% of infections, but has been seen. I am not sure of any data to answer the second question.
