HIV test

May 19, 2008

Hello Doc, Im writing you from Macedonia. Sorry for my English. I had unprotected sex 6 months ago. Three months after I had rapid HIV test negative and now 6 months after I took another test called ECLIA (COMBO HIV 1+2 and p24 antigen) negative too. Could you please explain me is this definitive? Tell me something more about ECLIA test is it good test or I should take ELISA test? Best regards Velimir How can I donate?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Velimir from Macedonia,

Cool name Velimir!

Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to six months are indeed definitive and conclusive. No need for additional tests (ELISA or anything else). All you need to do now is yell WOO-HOO or the equivalent in Macedonian!

Donation information for the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at

Be well. Stay well!
