What does it means

Feb 10, 2012

I just got the HIV test

HIV1/o/2 Abs-Index<1.00, what does it mean

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

"HIV1/o/2 Abs-Index<1.00" is how certain types of HIV testing report their results. HIV1/O/2 means that the test detects these different types of HIV. The normal (or "index") result (ie., HIV negative) is less than 1.00.

Be well, BY
