48 copies

Jun 28, 2009

I am a infected man and I have a question. My blood results came back and it said that I have less than 48 copies in that sample of blood. Now I should also mention that my cd4 count is 848. I was once down to 3! So am I reading these results RIGHT?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It may state that. You don't indicate what specific assay was used, but the less than, implies an undetectable viral load for that assay.
