Undetectable viral load

Nov 13, 1998

Assuming that the date of infection is known, how long may viral load remain undetectable without treatment? Indefinitely, or is there a point at which it will necessarily rear its ugly head and go "BOO!"

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Viral load will become detectable within several days after infection, and is detectable in essentially all HIV infected people forever unless effective treatment makes it undetectable. MH

CD4 and CD8 percentages
Elisa Test and Antibody Production!!!!!
