Dr. Bob, if a person progresses to AIDS in a few months following infection could this prevent the antibody test from turning positive if they progress that quickly ?
Response from Dr. Frascino
First of all, people do not "fast progressio" from primary infection to AIDS within a few months. It generally takes 8-10 years! Even if they did, the antibody test would still be positive.
