WORRIED PLEASE HELP.
Jan 31, 2008
HI DOCTOR BOB, THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. MY QUESTION IS THE FOLLOWING WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN YOU HAVE HAD A REPEATIVELY REACTIVE HIV TEST WITH AN REFERENCE INTERVAL OF 2.33 FOLLOWED BY A NEGATIVE WESTERN BLOT. AND AN ELEVATED WHITE BLOOD COUNT. DOES THIS MEAN THAT I CAN BE HIV POSITIVE. I AM NOT IN A WINDOW PERIOD. THANK YOU DOCTOR. CAN YOU GIVE ME THE INFO. ON HOW I CAN MAKE A DONATION TO YOUR FOUNDATION.
Response from Dr. Frascino
A reactive ELISA followed by a negative Western Blot is considered a negative HIV test. (The Western Blot is the more sensitive test.)
Donation information for the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at www.concertedeffort.org.
