What is the Chance?

Aug 12, 1999

Dr. Holodniy, what is the percent chance that someone could 1) be infected with HIV, 2) have non-stop ARS for five solid months since exposure, and 3) have a viral load of less than 50 copies/ml at five months since exposure WITHOUT ever having taken any anti-viral medications? In short, what is the percent chance that ALL of the above items could be true at the SAME time for a person?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You certainly could have 1 and 2, but probably not 3. Way less than 1 %. MH

Blood Tests
Undetectable viral load <400 HIV-1 copies
