How dies this Happen?
Mar 27, 2005
Just two questions. How many patients have you had that tested negative at eight (8) weeks with a ELSA test, then tested positive at twelve (12) weeks, and second what is the percentage nations wide of this occurring, if you have that info? Oh and P.S., I think your doing a hell of a job chilling us boneheads out. I mean how hard is it to Rubber up, Ya know!!!
Response from Dr. Frascino
Neither I, nor any guidelines, suggest or recommend testing at eight weeks. Consequently we have not statistics to answer your specific question. Testing prior to three months is not considered definitive, so it's a moot point anyway.
So my advice is as simple as 1-2-3!
1) chill out
2) retest at 12 weeks and
3) rubber up for future events.
OK? Good luck.
