Nicotine's effect on HIV ELISA test (SMOKING AND HIV TEST RESULTS, 2011)

Jun 25, 2011

Hello, Dr. Frascino -

Does smoking (cigarettes) have any effect on HIV testing? Also, does it affect the generally accepted 'window period' for HIV seroconversion? Thank you for your help.

Response from Dr. Frascino


As in the case with so many questions, the information/reassurance you desire was already waiting for you in the archives. See below.
