reversal of Seropositive status

Aug 28, 2005

I tested HIV positive 6 months ago. the report was confirmed by two successive ELISA tests and Western Blot test. I have also heard that a few number of those who are confirmed to be HIV positive can again revert back to a HIV negative status after some time. Is this true? If so what are the chances of me again being seronegative?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Once you are positive you are positive. Even if it were possible to lose antibodies and become seronegative you would still have evidence of virus in you as measured by viral load and other tests.
