AIDS=No antibodies

Apr 6, 2001

Do the majority of people with AIDS or long term HIV have positive antibody tests or has their body lost all ability to produce antibodies? Would 3 years be long enough to totally deplete the body of antibodies?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The overwhelming majority with AIDS still have positive antibody tests. If HIV infected for 3 years, they should still have antibodies.
