About an answer given on Nov 19th

Nov 25, 2009

Doctor, about an answer posted on November 19th (4th generation ELISA and WB). You told me ELISA does not pick up HIV antibodies before WB. But, at the 3 month mark I got a strongly reactive 4th generation ELISA (WB yet to be done). So, I guess ELISA does pick up antibodies before WB in the window period. Regards!

You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding.

Thank you
