WHEN ARE THESE TESTS ACCURATE?
Sep 9, 1998
If I had an exposure in Feb of 98' and had an HIV ELISA and PCR DNA and RNA in July 98' would they show this virus or is it to early. I am just making sure I have ruled it out. Thanks
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Five months after an exposure is more than enough time. DNA and RNA PCR tests would be positive within a couple of weeks after infection. MH
