It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more

I had unprotected oral sex on me I saw no blood I have no sores I am circumsized I have tooken a HIV dna pcr test at 18 days and a 46 also a 4 week and 6 week duo test and a 8 week rapid test am I ok?
You're OK: Oral sex is safe sex for HIV, with no proved transmissions by fellatio from mouth to penis, only rare ones penis to oral. You didn't need testing on account of this event and for sure not the multiple expensive ones you had. But the results from that combination of tests are conclusive. For sure you didn't catch HIV during that exposure and no further testing is needed. Best wishes and stay safe! ...Read more

I did a DNA PCR test for HSV & i got the result: -humanes herpesvirus-dna ((typ 7, pcr) (eb) : negative limit of detection:100 copies/ml.So i'm clean?
Hsv-7 isn't detected: Your question will require some clarification since you stated being tested for herpes simplex virus, the result you describe tests for human herpesvirus type7, which cannot be detected by pcr testing below 100 copies per ml . Hhv-7 is not the same as hsv. Though theyboth belong to the same heresviridae family. ...Read more

Hiv DNA PCR dectected on 4/08/13 and antibody negative.Still now 6/3/13 8 weeks later still show HIV anitbody negative. What are your thoughts? Is the PCR a false positive?
Not necessarily: Is it really the dna or the RNA pcr? The dna qualitative pcr is the most sensitive test and may become positive months before antibody is detected. The quantitative RNA pcr that is used for monitoring also becomes positive early. Antibodies may not develop until 3 months from the infection. So, they may still develop. If you have not seen a HIV physician and are not on art, see one asap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hiv pcr plasma at 8 weeks, hiv antibody test at 6 weeks post possible exposure. how reliable and accurate? could it have detected if there coinfection
No evidence of HIV-1: This is good news - PCR tests are extremely sensitive, so if 'nothing' was found at 8 weeks, I'm 99.9% sure you don't have HIV. In addition, you have a second test -for HIV antibody that is also negative 6 weeks after a possible exposure. So this means you're absolutely HIV free - just remember to be 'safe' out there. Talk to your doc about the best ways to protect yourself and others. ...Read more
Old or recent herpes infection? Herpes 6 ab panel blood results: herpes virus 6 igm neg:<1:10<1:10(my value) herpes virus 6 IgG pos<.99 mine 13.56
I don't get it: Herpes 6 is the roseola virus which infects nearly all of us since early childhood. There is speculation about some possible indirect relationship to multiple sclerosis. It is not an std! it is not the same as herpes simplex which is responsible for genital herpes or cold sores (hsv 2, hsv1). Why test for hsv6?. Acyclovir will yield no benefit for this unless you have a (rare) acute hh6 infe. ...Read more
