Should I worry about the
Feb 23, 1999
Dear Dr. Holodniy:
I have been researching into how I could get tested for the "O" type of HIV, but I have no success. One person at Organon Teknika told me Nobody has the test (I guess he meant FDA approved) for this type "O" yet. It is only available in Europe.
How many cases of "O" type been found that you know of??
I had my one time sex encounter in Hong Kong with a prostitute. Do you think I should drive myself up the ceiling thinking of this "O" type?
Thank you for your valuable time. It is greatly appreciated
Response from Dr. Holodniy
No, you don't need to get tested for type O. You were in the wrong hemisphere. It's in Africa. MH
