HIV Positive

May 19, 2010

Hello doctor, are all HIV positive people have had positive elisa test and positive western blot? mine is positive elisa and negative western blot? I am not positive right?

Response from Dr. Frascino


A reactive (positive) ELISA plus a negative confirmatory Western Blot taken outside the window period would be considered a negative HIV diagnostic test.
