extended window?
      #23235 - 10/11/01 02:27 PM

Im taking Human Biology and I looked up Aids in the book and I read something I could not believe. It says that 90% of people will show positive by 6 months and a few individuals may not test positive for three or more years. Now this book was published in 2001 but I couldent find a date on when they got this information. Now I know obviously this info is outdated but I have never heard of anyone not testing positve untill 3 or more years after infection? The CDC says the longest time it took someone to test positive was 11 months after exposure and this is the one and only case. How can they publish this in a book that is dated 2001?

stop reading so much, Do you think US or any European country would have 3 or 6 month if it is only 90%?? Let face the fact, CDC have 6 month because they think the test is 99.99%. No one will have 3 or 6 month if only 90%. You also need to look if it is new fact and if this information come from HIV specialists. As you know ordinary doctor´s doesnt have all fact and competence to see the right window so please call the CDC and tell them these fact and see what they say.
Take it easy!
