Feel Like A Guinea Pig

Aug 23, 2001

Dear Doctor, I took Post exposure prophylaxis after a known exposure. I have tested negative at 6 months out. Can I stop testing now or does PEP warrent further follow up testing. Please help clarify for me.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

As far as we know, PEP does not warrant further testing. However the studies are still ongoing, both in terms of seroconversion rates and followup.
