Viral Load - Lab Result
Sep 16, 2012
The Interpretation was:
Threshold is estimated as 20 copies (1.3 log)of HIV-1 RNA/mL of plasma. The linearity range extends up to 10000000 copies/mL (log 7).The quantification is homogeneous for all sub types of HIV-1 group O tested,but is not applicable to HIV-2.This test is exclusively reserved for the follow up of viral loads in HIV-1 seropositive patients.Due to an increased sensitivity,a residual viral load,not demonstrated by alternative techniques, and of which clinical impact is not established presently,may be detected.
Is there anything that I should worry about?
Thanks and best regards.

I assume you are on HIV treatment, in which case, there is nothing to worry about.
