Window Period
      #18529 - 06/19/01 09:35 AM

I donīt understand this about the Window Period because in sweden we have 6-12Weeks and after 12 weeks we are saying that the test is 99.9% safe and no need for new test, what I have heard Sweden have studied people with a knowed or peoples that have ARS and they canīt find anyone taking longer than 8 Weeks. In France they are saying 99.8% after 4 weeks with the newest tests and in England they saying 99% after 3 month, some Ref. from England "but there are enough such people for virologists to be confident
in saying that about 99% of people will give a positive result 3 months after infection." In USA you have 95-99% after 3 month. I think itīs time to find out the thruth about this window because how will we find a Vaccine or cure if we canīt agree on the window period? What do you all think?

I agree with Shane ...... regardless of the "true" window period, I doubt the CDC will change their 6 month line - they play it ultra-conservative!
