enough testing ?
Oct 12, 2006
Dear Bobby Bob,
I hope you are well and enjoying life in California.
I have a short q for you and believe i know the answer. I only want to hear it from you.
Testing History :
Hiv: neg antibody at 48 weeks.
Hep b : neg antibody at 28 weeks and 35 weeks.
Hep c : neg antibody at 28 weeks, neg riba at 15 weeks and 35 weeks. The screening test had a 1.0 s/c both times and the Riba was neg both times. Neg Hcv Pcr by Rna at 18 weeks.
Is this enough testing for a definite neg outcome for Hiv/hep B/hep c? Would your answer be different with no Pcr test for hep C?
Thanks for your help, Bobby Bob. A contribution is on its way to your foundation but Do NOT feel you have to answer my q. I know many others have qs as important as mine.

Hello Grateful Fan,

Thanks for your donation!
