HIV tests at early stage
Jun 14, 1999

Dear doctor .

which tests are the most important one to do to detect HIV at early stage ..and what is the name of the latest generation of viral load test.Thank you doctor for your response.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Depends on what early is. Nothing is 100% reliable within the first 4 weeks of infection. DNA PCR and viral load tests become positive by 4 weeks. Antibody tests within 4-12 weeks. MH
