Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Egyptian Guy,

1. No. It's not necessary. Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to one year and three months are definitive, conclusive, WOO-HOO-able and move-on-already-able! HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted.

2. Certainly not, if you are doing so because of your HIV fears related to your "From Russia with Love" sexperience of December 2008! If, however, you are sexually active with multiple partners, routine STD screening, including HIV testing, would be warranted every six months going forward.

3. No, absolutely not.

4. HIV screening tests that include both anti-HIV antibodies (Abs) and p24 antigen (Ag) are generally considered to be fourth generation screening tests (Ab/Ag). ELISA stands for enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. It's a standard HIV-antibody test.

Dr. Bob
