Can HIV meds mutate the virus so that it is undetectable on tests?

Jan 10, 2010

I just wondered if there have been any cases of someone testing repeatedly negative on antibody and PCR and bdna tests because their virus was a wierd strain or perhaps was a mutated form of the virus due to exposure to HIV Meds?

I know this is probably unlikely, but wanted to check.



Response from Dr. Holodniy

Not that I am aware of.

Methotrexate and CD4 counts
T-cell count going down depresses me
