afraid u dnt answ. my quest. b/c ur not sure... freakng out now!

Jun 12, 2009

Dr. Bob, i'll be brief, pneumonia & ribavirin... can they give me a false negative after 2 years of exposure?

Response from Dr. Frascino


I didn't respond because I've responded to many similar questions in the past. The answer is no. Neither pneumonia nor ribavirin will affect the accuracy of HIV-antibody tests.
