Around how many?

May 20, 1999

You said there are very very few cases that people need more than six months to show positive in antibody test. Could you tell me around how many cases? Since I am very worry about I am one of this case.. Thanks you very much! Thanks you very much!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This is an unquantifiable number, which we will never have any accuracy around. We can only know those cases that are reported in the literature. Given the sensitivity of the antibody assays today, it's only a handful. MH
