Correlation between ARS and positive test result?

Apr 16, 1999

Anything to suggest that people who experience ARS test positive sooner than those who don't?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Good question, hard to answer with any great certainty. The way people present during acute infection is usually with some kinds of symptoms (swollen glands, fever, etc) and then the testing cycle begins. It requires intensive testing (weekly, bimonthly) after that to determine the kinetics of antibody development. It is very hard to find asymptomatic people who have been exposed and infected and followed with serial blood tests to ascertain their kinetics of antibody development. MH
