Long-Term Non-progressor

Jan 18, 2004

I have been called a "Long- Term Non-Progressor" Kindly tell me the name of the tests that can somewhat confirm this as well as possible labs or sites in central California that do these tests and studies. Thankyou

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In general, the definition includes those people who have been infected for 10 years or longer, have maintained a CD4 count > 500 and an undetectable viral load (or at least < 500/ml) in the absence of any HIV treatment.

cd4 counts all over the scale
Penicillin & false positive?
