hiv positive after 3 months?
Jun 30, 2001
You have said that 95,99 of people seroconvert after 3 months using the elisa . My question is will the pcr cover the rest say 5 if one cannot wait another 3 months to cover the total 6 month or longer window? secondly , do you recommend i undergo an expensive pcr if I have been tested negative at 6 weeks and at 3 months ?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
There is no data to determine whether PCR has added value in such a case. Certainly after 3 months, there is no added value.
