Antibodies, seroconversion
      #253807 - 01/05/11 02:18 PM

Can drinking green and black tea (excessively) prolong or delay HIV seroconversion?
I have taken two HIV antibody tests at 5.5 months and 9.5 months, both of which were negative. However, I am concerned because I read that green tea contains proteins that inhibit replication of the virus. If this is the case, could my body have been mislead and therefore not made sufficient antibodies? I have been having many symptoms since August and don't know what could be causing them. Please answer if you are very knowledgable about this topic! Thanks

I believe Dr. Frascino or one of the other experts answered this question in the "ask the experts" section. The answer was no, it would not delay it. Your test results are conclusive.
