1-dose window period for hiv2 longer than hiv1. 2- If someone have habetites B for more than 20 years and have no any problem and all liver function are normal, dose that delay hiv test for more than 4 months after exposure.
| Response from Dr. Frascino
1. The window period for HIV-2 is the same as for HIV-1.
2. Chronic hepatitis B with normal liver function would not delay HIV seroconversion. A negative test at four months would be definitive and conclusive.
