<50 vs. <400?

Jul 4, 2004

My HIV specialist tests to <400, not to <50. Since I'm on a nonstandard first-line regimen (Trizivir alone -- with ideal results, <400 in less than four weeks) should I request the more sensitive test to stay ahead of possible resistance?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

My recommendation would be to use the more sensitive test.
