loss of core antibody
Feb 16, 2009
Dear Dr. Bob, if a person was infected 10 years ago or more and has a loss of core antibody, would they still test positive on an ELISA test, or would they need a different kind of test performed?
Response from Dr. Frascino
They would still test positive on routine HIV-antibody tests (ELISA, EIA, rapid tests, etc.).
