indeterminate before but now negative elisa

Dec 15, 2007

I had an indeterminate HIV home access test a few years ago, after which I had not been tested again until recently. My recent ELISA test came back non-reactive(negative). Is this conclusive and can I assume that I am HIV negative?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Yes, your recent negative ELISA is definitive: you are HIV negative. Why did you wait several years to definitively ascertain your HIV status after your indeterminate test result "a few years ago"????? That's just plain nuts!
