Hiv (Definition)

Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

What is HIV ab, HIV 1/2, eia with reflexes? I had blood work done. Did they test for antibodies and the virus?

What is HIV ab, HIV 1/2, eia with reflexes? I had blood work done. Did they test for antibodies and the virus?

Antibody test HIV: It is a test for the two main types of HIV antibody (ab), types 1 and 2. Eia is the primary test method that is inexpensive, but it occasionally has false positive result, so there is a reflex test (automatic confirmation test) using a more expensive but more trustworthy test (immunoblot) to make very sure that the eia test result really is positive. There is a pcr test to detect HIV itself. ...Read more

I got needlestick injury and tested after 6 months for HIV 1/2 quali and result is negative. Should I re-test again?

Needlestick risk HIV: No, you don't need to be tested again. Conversion to HIV + will occur within 3 months, in almost all people.The CDC recommends a test be done at 6 months and if negative, the infection has not been transmitted. You can relax now. ...Read more

Please explain what does HIV 1/2 negative mean?

Good news: There are 2 main viruses that cause AIDS. HIV-1 and HIV-2. I guess scientists couldn't think of any better names! Mostly in the U.S. and the rest of the world, HIV-1 is the most common virus. In Western Africa they have some HIV-2 infections. Your test, which is negative! - tested you for both viruses, on the very rare chance you could have gotten HIV-2 infection. Make sure going forward 2b safe! ...Read more

Probably: However, it is too soon to tell. If you had high risk exposure you should discuss prophylactic treatment with your doctor. It may take up to six months for HIV infection to manifest itself, so you should repeat the tests in 6 months. ...Read more

Could one infected with both hiv-1 and hiv-2 at a time?

Could one infected with both hiv-1 and hiv-2 at a time?

Yes: Infection with either hiv-1 or hiv-2 is not protective against a superimposed infection by the other virus. So in theory, yes, one could get both in one individual. Hiv-2 is fairly uncommon in the us so infection with it is unlikely. ...Read more

Im concern i had labs drawn and one of the test  hiv-1 antibody  value <1.00 and range <1.00 but the result says "negative". What doea this mean?

Negative: You have a negative HIV test. "<" means "less than." the "range" means the result you would expect in someone without HIV infection (less than 1.00), which is also your result. That's why your test is negative. ...Read more
