Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Oberoi,

Your repeatedly negative HIV-1 and HIV-2 tests (including PCR DNA) out to 13 weeks are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem! No way. No how! I agree that your herpes simplex virus tests are normal. No further HIV or HSV testing is warranted.

Thank you for your kind pledge to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation. Donation information can be found on the foundation's Web site at

Now stop worrying and start WOO-HOOing! OK?

Be well. Play safe and you'll stay safe.

Dr. Bob
