Concerned about the (hiv rna pcr)test
Aug 4, 2001
Dr.Thanks in advance in answering my question.I had a sexual exposure 7 weeks ago,from then onwards i have taken several ELISA tests at 2,3,4,5 weeks and all came back negative.After 7 th week i.e after 50 days i had a "HIV RNA PCR" test.The results of this test are as follows,
HIV RNA COPIES <25 HIV RNA(LOG10) <1.4
I am not sure what this mean.Can you please clear it up for me and give the percentage that i am not infected after these tests?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
The log copy number stated, is just another way to say the same thing as < 50 copies.
