Viral Load details
Apr 1, 2010

Dear Sir,my i 31y male possitive from last six month when diagosed my cd4 is 93 and viral load is i checked in jan-10 now my CD4 is 293 and Viral load is <50. Viral load less than 50 means what i don't understand what is it? I taking Tenofovir from last six months and it is continued..

Response from Mr. Vergel

I hope you are taking Tenofovir with other HIV medications. Otherwise you will develop resistance to monotherapy.

Viral load under 50 copies per ml is a good thing. It means that your viral load has decreased below the level of detection using current viral load tests. You are not cured, but your viral replication is halted or slowed down.

Please let me know if you are taking tenofovir with something else.
