Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
India or elsewhere, there is no cure for HIV infection. There are many strategies currently under investigation, but it will take many years to know if any one of these will ultimately yield a safe and effective cure. Untill that time, current medications to treat HIV are very highly effective and safe, and can permit high-quality and lengthy life, and prevent new infections.
Once one has HIV infection, the immune systems responds to the virus by making antibodies (resulting in a positive HIV antibody test). Since the test only measures antibodies and not the virus itself, having an undetectable HIV viral load doesn't change the antibody test result.
Hope that helps. BY
