how did i get infected

Dec 17, 2006

Is ther any way to prove 100% who infected you with DNA testing?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

One can look at comparing viral strains, but that has to be done relatively soon after contact and infection. It is not 100%, but relatively close. The longer the time between infection the more likely the viral strains can diverge and make the comparison and conclusions much more difficult.
