Response from Dr. Frascino


Your HIV-acquisition risk is negligible at best. If you remain worried, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. I'm confident the result will be negative.

Thanks for your donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation. Donation information, including the address, can be found on the foundation's Web site at In return I'm sending you my good-luck karma that you are and will stay HIV negative!

Good luck. Be well.

Dr. Bob
