hello dr.,

1. will the current elisa 1/2 reliably detect all CRF's??

2. how about ALL subtypes of group M??

thank you for your time. it is much appreciated.

Response from Dr. Sherer

Yes, the current generation of elisas detect all subtypes of group M, including CRFs.

In contrast, false negatives have been reported with the more rare group O and group N infections.

Switching back to previous drug combos?
