Qualitative PCR
      #156181 - 06/15/05 12:52 PM

Hello friends
I had high risk exposure 2 months ago with an infected man. I know that i have to wait, but i need to ask.
20 days after I have a negative Elisa 3rd generation.
But my strong ARS synthomps appeared on the 4th week: pharyngits, fever, swollen nodes, weight loss.
50 days after that exposure I had a Qualitative PCR negative. I know that is not conclusive, but is a good sign.
Please I need to know if someone knows about any "false negative" before in this kind of tests?
