Late ARS = late seroconversion

Dec 10, 2017

Has there been any study conducted as to why people becomr HIV+ at 6 months test instead of 3 months? Do people who become hiv+ at 6 months tend to go through the ARS later than the 2- 6 week window, such as 4 months? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The "why" is a difficult question to answer, and likely depends on the underlying immune system and genetics of a person, the type of HIV one is infected with, the amount of HIV in the body fluids being transmitted, and the method of transmission.

RPR is 1:256 and tested negative for all other STDs
hiv antibody test
