gp160 & p24

Mar 24, 2013

My partner had an indeterminate western blot in December 2012, had a negative RNA test in December. Now his repeat western blot shows gp160 and p24 reactivity. His last unprotected sex before me was June 2011. Does the negative RNA trump the positive western blot? He is a Type I diabetic.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The tests should be repeated, as the results are still inconclusive.
