HIV window period statistics
Aug 28, 2011
Hi Dr Bob,
I know you get asking some of this redundantly... but I havent been able to find any clear statistics on my own.
1. I read a statistic that said that 53.77 % of People produce detectable antibodies at 2 weeks, and 84% at 3 weeks post exposure. Is this a reasonable statistic to you 2. Are the window periods that people cite for antibody tests applicable to to the Oraquick rapid test too.
Thanks so much for all that you do. And sorry if the above 2 are repetitive, i just haven't seen anything clear about it

These types of questions do come up frequently. Check out my most recent blog, "HIV Guidelines: Some Evolve; Some Don't. What's Up With That?" If you have questions after reading the blog, write back, okay?
