No antibodies and no symptoms: For how long?
Sep 12, 1996
Hi. Is it possible for a person to continually test negative for HIV antibodies and yet remain healthy for extended periods? (say 5 yrs) If the body didn't know how to make HIV antibodies, wouldn't the HIV virus "take advantage" and very quickly overwhelm the body instead of going into incubation, as they often do after the initial attack? Thanks.
