I've been thinking of starting medications here soon...although I'm really interested some of the new clinical trials availible. ( I particularly like the ideas presented at the NY Aaron Diamond Center ).
Any particular suggestions? I mean, I was expecting slightly lower viral load counts since I've only been infected for 3 monthes.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your question.
There are tests to determine if you have actue infection-- usually we rely on a negative or indeterminate ELISA and a positive viral RNA PCR. An alternative is the detuned ELISA- available in research centers.
I'd advise you to contact you local university or ACTU to see if you'd qualify for clnical trials for actue seroconverters.
Good luck, BY
