A 28-year-old male asked:

Is a negative hiv person, diagnosed with low lymphocytes t4 and t8 cells, still able to produce hcv antibodies after 1 year of one possible exposure ?

Yes: Plenty of people naturally run relatively low lymphocytes, though it's good to try to find why. If this person isn't making antibodies after a year, consider yourself healthy, though if you or your physician are concerned, you can get a pcr for the virus.
