100% accurate testing for all Subtypes

Jun 21, 1999

Hello Doc. I am willing to go anywhere in the world to get a 100% accurate testing for Hiv and all its subtypes. Currently I test Negative for antibody testing on Elisa and PCR.Should I go for the western blot. It's been two years since very high risk exposure. Fevers & flus make me feel suicidal.I am afraid I may spread it to others.Please reply.Very Serious.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

A western blot is unnecessary with a negative ELISA. Given you have also had a negative PCR test, and your exposure was 2 years ago, you don't need further testing. MH
