ELISA POSITIO, WESTERN BLOT NEGATIVO, CARGA VIRAL SOLICITADA
Sep 4, 2013

Hace poco se me realizó una prueba ELISA que resultó POSITIVA y luego una prueba CONFIRMATORIA WESTERN BLOT con relatado NEGATIVO. ¿Es necesaria una prueba de CARGA VIRAL? Es la tercera prueba que me mandaron a realizar.

Response from Dr. Natterstad

En una palabra, no. Una prueba ELISA positiva más una prueba WESTERN BLOT negativa equivalen a VIH negativo. Y punto.
