RNA testing & different strains
      #39029 - 08/29/02 03:43 PM

Just a question for the board. I had a Roche RNA version 1.0 test done and it came back non-detectible under 400. I know this is geared to pick up clade B and not the others. What are the odds that I could have picked up a weird subtype here in the US? Does anyone know the stats on subtypes here in the US? Exposure was years ago!! Thanks everyone. Also, is CD4 of 632 (37%) normal for a healthy uninfected person?

According to a HIV specialist that did the test for me Roche PCR-RNA 1.0 BDC and G are picked up well. E and F are underestimated, and it has trouble with A. O is not picked up

Hope that Helps
