Seroconversion and ARS
Apr 6, 1998

WOndering if people who experience acute retroviral syndrome

seroconvert sooner than others. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Currier

I do not know whether people who have symptoms during seroconversion are seroconverting sooner after exposure than people who do not experience symptoms. People who do not get the symptoms have not been studied as much becuase they are harder to find. I do recall seeing some information that people who get symptoms might have a faster rate of CD4 decline ( without therapy), but I do not know about seroconversion. Sorry I can't give you more information.


Will I die soon like in the next 3 mos?
