high-risk individuals harbor extremely low levels of infectious HIV in blood and/or tissues. But they are HIV-negative in tests?? http://www.searo.who.int/LinkFiles/News_Letters_HIV-AIDS-Aug-08.pdf
If they are sero negative, how can they harbor the HIV-virus. Is it possible that these people can transmit the desase to others?
Please help, worried sick!

Hello and thanks for posting.
These fortunate individuals appear to be naturally resistant to HIV infection-- as such, they neither have, nor can transmit HIV.
