DNA PCR v. Elisa Test
Aug 9, 1999
Dr. Holodniy: I just had a DNA PCR test for a possible exposure six weeks ago (I haven't gotten the results yet). The doctor at the testing facility advised me that the DNA PCR at 4+ weeks is as accurate as the Elisa test is at 3 months. I just want to know that I'm okay. Should I take the Elisa test at the three month mark in addition to the DNA PCR? Thank you.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
He is probably right. It comes down to what you feel comfortable with. MH
