Is HIV detectable during "clinical latency" period?

Is HIV detectable after 6 years from the possible exposure to the infection

Response from Dr. Young


The latency period is defined as a time when one is HIV infected but without clinically detectable symptoms.

During this phase, HIV antibody tests are positive and the virus can be directly detected by HIV viral load (PCR) tests.
