PLEASE COULD YOU EXPLAIN MY RESULTS. HEP B ANTIGEN NOT DECTED HIV 1&2 ANTIGEN/ANTIBODY NOT DETECTED TREPONEMA PALLIDUM ANTIBODIES NOT DETECTED
Response from Dr. Frascino
Sure. These screening tests indicate you do not have hepatitis B, HIV-1, HIV-2 and syphilis. However, I should point out that all tests have limitations. For instance, testing within the "window period" or under extenuating circumstances, such as while taking high-dose corticosteroids, may give false-negative HIV test results. Consequently, I do recommend you review your test results with your physician before drawing any firm conclusions, OK?
From what I see, these results are nothing but good news!
