Interpreting: copies/ ml?
Aug 12, 2005
Hello, exactley how is 400 copies/ml. under HIV-1 RNA Copies/ml to be interpreted? Is it 400 HIV-1 Viruses composed of 2 RNA strands enclosed in a single gp-120 capsule per ml or is it 200 viruses composed of 2 RNA strands enclosed in a single gp-120 capsule per ml. Or is it something entirely different? Thanks for the knowledge, Scott.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
No, it's 400 copies of RNA and it is not expressed as the number of copies in virus particles.
