Window Period Data
      #27349 - 01/24/02 09:01 PM

Are there some information that people test negative on Elisa just after 6/7 weeks, that tests postive after 13 weeks.

Does anybody is aware of such case?

This window period, and so many confused statement by the experts - I have not seen the case as mentioned above - but would really like to know is anyone aware of it.

Thanks.

FROM HOPKINS SITE:

The sequence of events with testing is the following:

Day 0: HIV transmitted
Days 8-14: HIV RNA becomes detectable (This is the "eclipse time" and requires sufficient replication for detection. Some cases have a substantial delay.)
Days 16-17: HIV p24 antigen becomes detectable.
Day 23: EIA screening becomes positive. The time of a positive WB depends on the kit.

All data above are averages. Nearly all standard serologic tests are positive by 6 weeks.

Nothing is bad there - all I am saying is very genuine - and I am very troubled with current situation, keep testing, seing mental health therapyst etc. Just in desperate needs for help.
