Western Blot and HIV-2

Apr 19, 1999

Dear Doctor:

Do most State hospital labs do HIV 1 as well as HIV 2 testing? I know that there arte different ELISA tests for HIV- 1 and 2. Is the Western Blot also different?


Response from Dr. Holodniy

The western blot tests are indeed different for both HIV-1 and 2. Don't know about the state lab question. MH
