Antibody Production - From The CDC
      #33189 - 04/28/02 07:07 AM

Don't know if anyone has posted this already, but I found this while reading about rapid testing (which is what the lab I go to does) :


If a person receives a negative rapid HIV test result, is a confirmatory test needed?

A negative antibody test result, whether it is from a rapid HIV test or an EIA, does not require a
confirmatory test. However, a person may have been tested too soon, before antibodies developed.
The average time between infection and the development of detectable antibodies is 25 days.


That's a little reassuring if the CDC itself says an average of 25 days. Here is the link: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/pubs/rt/rapidqas.htm

Bold statement.

What facts do you have to back up that statement?

Or is it just your personal opinion?

T.i.a.d.

You people are sick. Why would you even believe that the CDC would lie about that? They stand to gain more by lengthening the window period (more research funding) than shortening it. Why do you think it takes so long to update the damn thing all the time? And why do you think that the US is always slower than everyone in research studies? Same reason there is always road construction (the more you spend the more you get). Don't get me wrong, I happen to be a fan of "the system," but that's just the way it is with capitalism.
