Had unprotected sex, I got HIV combo cmia test on day 18, 35 and 50 days and the woman who I had sex with got her tested day 18 and 30 combo all non reactive, do I need more tests to be done or is this conclusive?
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

Hiv anitibody and anitgen combo test (CMIA) done after 5 months 20 days of possible exposure came out non reactive. Are these result satisfactory.
Negative: Yes. You are HIV negative. But you have included the opposite in your health history. Misleading us about your health is extremely unwise. It can lead to inaccurate answers or inaccurate assumptions on how questions are responded to. Faking an illness is a sign of a mental health condition. Please clarify and correct your health history. ...Read more
I went for HIV 1/2 & p24 Combo test (CMIA) Test on 32nd day after HIV exposure and result was non reactive. 1). How much I can trust these result?
I got a tattoo. On 32nd day I went for HIV 1/2 & p24 Combo test (CMIA) and its came negative. Is this conclusively? How much I can trust this result.
Trust it: Proper sterilization of tattoo equipment is near-universal today. There is an HIV risk if the needle was recently used by another person. Just how much of a risk getting inked ever was for hepatitis C is unknown; other risky practices run with tattoo culture. Whatever exposure you may have had, the test is reliable at 32 days; human reporting error makes the false-negative rate unknowable. ...Read more
I am diagnosed HIV. The 1st test was conducted on 10th SEP & result was 2.12 (CMIA Abbott Ab/AG Combo) & 2nd test on 25 SEP with 1.86. Plz guide me.
Hello! Is 76 days (11 weeks) HIV 1&2 CMIA combo p24 nonreactive (0.07) test conclusive? Retest after a week required? Thanks!
Conclusive at 4+ wk: That test is conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after exposure. At 11 weeks, there is no need for additional testing. Former advice about testing at 3 months was for antibody-only tests, not combo tests; and even that is outmoded for the newer (third generation) antibody tests, which generally are conclusive after 6-8 weeks. ...Read more

HIV 1&2 P24 Combo (CMIA) test done on 13th day. Index value is 0.1 and non reactive. Symptoms. White patches on tongue so far. How reliable is my test?
Pretty reliable: This test result is about 80-90% reliable in showing you did not catch HIV 13 days previously. Have another test at 4 weeks to be 100% certain. It is much too soon for "white patches" on your tongue to be due to a new HIV infection; they have nothing to do with HIV or your possible exposure to it. ...Read more

With todays ultra sensitive modern ELISA tests, what use is the western blot for hiv? A few months ago I received a weakly reactive cmia HIV ag/ab test, a 4th generation HIV combo test, and this was followed by a negative western blot and a negative p24 t
False-positives: Screening tests are designed to be highly sensitive so they don't miss anyone with the disease. However, they can be so sensitive that they occasionally give a false-positive result. That is, the test appears positive for someone without the disease. The western blot, being time consuming and extra cost, is only used to make sure a positive is really a positive. Talk with your doc for more info. ...Read more
I had one time unprotected sex, I am worried about getting HIV. I tested at a lab -CMIA HIV1/2 combo test. Latest result 42nd day -negative. Conclusive?
To be sure, at six months after exposure, get a HIV nucleic acid test. If that is negative you should be okay.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Is Hiv test after 5 months 20 days after exposure conclusive or retest is required. The result was non reactive and method antibody antigen combo (CMIA?
HIV 1&2 P24 Combo (CMIA) test on13th day. Index value 0.1& non-reactive. Symptoms so far-Oral candidiasis from 14th day. How reliable is the test?
You don't have HIV: This test result is over 80% reliable; almost certainly you do not have HIV. Have another test at 4 weeks to be certain. Do not assume oral candidasis if you just have a white tongue; coated tongue and candidasis are not the same. Anyway, it is too soon to have oral candida due to a new HIV infection, and test results always overrule symptoms. See a doctor if your mouth problem continues. ...Read more
Is HIV 1/2 antibody combo (cmia) test as accurate as ELISA test? Also if the combo test at 75 & repeated at 100 days concl. If they are non reactive?
HIV testing: Yes the combination of testing for p24 antigen and antibodies to HIV 1 ; 2 is quite accurate, even if done using techniques other than elisa. The negative results at >3 mos after exposure make it almost certain that you are not infected with this virus, although there have been very rare cases in which antibodies were not detected until 6 to 12 mos later. You are probably fine. ...Read more

Did my HIV test cmia method after 2 months 15 days came out non reactive and index 0.13 does I need furthur testing or this result is satisfactory?
Fingered someone with a superficial cut on finger. 8weeks CMIA duo P24 HIV 1&2 test negative. Further testing required? Conclusive? Thanks!
Conclusive: This was a zero risk exposure, or close to it. Nobody has ever been known to catch HIV by fingering, even with cuts on the fingers. In any case, the test you had is conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after the exposure. There is no secondary window period (which you might have read about online-- an urban myth). No more testing is needed. ...Read more
Hiv test antibody and p24 antigen (cmia) done after 5 months 15 days after possible exposure came out non reactive. Is this result satisfactory. Help?
Can a negative western blot test for hiv 1&2 @ 16 weeks PE considered 100% conclusive? @12 weeks CMIA was also negative. Thanks!
HIV nucleic acid:
Some people take a lot longer to make antibodies. Therefore you should get a HIV nucleic acid test at 6 months after exposure, if that is negative, that would be conclusive.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
CMIA 4th gen antibody screening test (not antigen) for hiv 1 & 2 @50 days is 0.15 non reactive. Is antibody screening without antigen accurate @7thweek?
Conclusive at 6+ wk: Official advice by many agencies is that stand-alone HIV antibody tests are not conclusive until 3 months. However, with the modern tests in current use, including the test you had, the results actually are conclusive any time 6 or more weeks after exposure. Feel free to have another test at 3 months if another negative result will help you get beyond your fears. But I really isn't necessary. ...Read more
Simultaneous detection of p24 antigen and antibody HIV 1and 2 cmia = 4th generation ag ab combo? Which means u have been tested for p24 /antibody?
Yes and no...: The antibody portion of the test detects antibody to several HIV antigens in addition to p24. Probably you do have antibody to p24, but the test doesn't distinguish these various types. And it doesn matter. If your test is negative and it has been 4 weeks or more after your last possible exposure to HIV, the result is conclusive. ...Read more
Could little increase in floaters in eyes be a sign of a recent of a HIV infection 57 days combo CMIA bloodantibody antigen P24 result negative (0.07)?
Xposr was in pattaya wth a csw. Sufrd all smptms. But negtv HIV 1/2 RNA n cmia duo at 8 mths. Could it be subtype e can all ths tsts done detct it?
You do not have HIV:
Please. You are driving yourself insane. Your symptoms, described in numerous earlier questions, do not in any way represent an HIV infection. You wore a condom.
I am not sure if this is guilt or shame causing you so much pain. I don't know if your physical symptoms are all derived from your stress over this event.
I can tell you with significant expertise that you are not HIV positive. ...Read more
Inother words would RNA PCR for HIV 1 n cmia duo detect subtype e and other rare subtypes also at 8 months post exposure in thailand. ..Many smptms?
Can verify: You'll need to place a call to the lab to be sure they are testing for the rare subtypes, and you have every right to do this. However, if you have "many symptoms" and your only risky exposure was eight months ago, then your symptoms are not due to hiv, as it would be latent at this stage. I suspect you've got a bad case of the "nerves" -- I've had it too, and learned from it. Stay well. ...Read more
Would RNA PCR for HIV 1 n cmia duo detect subtype e n other rare subtypes also at 8 months post xposr n thailnd. Many smptms? Negative result coclusive?
Yes, but...: The latest pcr tests for HIV should be able to detect the rarer subtypes, but in life, no test is perfect. Life is about chances (probabilities, likelihoods), so if it has been 8 months since a known high risk exposure to HIV and one's primary doctor (or infectious diseases doctor) has done adequate testing, then negative results mean one did not catch HIV that time. Keep in touch with the doctor. ...Read more
HIV CMIA repeatedly reactive but ELFA negative more than 2 years, no pcr done, w.blot for hiv1&2 negative but did only one time after receiving my first reactive results ; that is hiv cmia 2.57 (, 1.00), ELFA 0.02 (<0.25)?
Depends....: Non of these tests are flawless or 100%. Then false + ve and False negative comes in to play. So if you are engaged in activity of exposing yourself to HIV.......it will happen. No point discussing the lab results. It is an infectious disease related to specific activity. See PMD. ...Read more
I had 10 4th generation HIV test combo out to 7 month from my exposure. All were negative, is it enough?
Yes: Be thankful for good health. Cherish the memory of having loved and been loved, imperfect as it may have been -- human love always is. Learn, and be thankful and glad that you're wiser now than you once were. Be proud that you're a man, and love responsibly and well from now on. Best wishes. ...Read more
23 weeks past HIV exposure and negative results from duo combo and rapid tests. Is my results conclusive?
Yes, conclusive: The 4th generation (duo, combo) HIV tests are 100% conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after the last possible exposure. And all rapid tests are 100% reliable by 3 months. You didn't need to wait so long, but your negative results at 23 weeks prove you don't have HIV, assuming no reexposure more recently. Please use condoms for potential risky exposures, and consider circumcision if not yet done. ...Read more
Hiv p24 ag ab combo test at 28 days, 42 days and 62 days, some are negative. Quanto to be safe after 62 days?
Not a good test: P24 antigen testing is not the best way to rule out infection. The most sensitive test is a qualitative viral dna test, not usually performed. At 62 days HIV elisa may well be positive, if you were infected. Because sometimes antibodies are not formed until 90 days, you can complement by HIV RNA test that can detect down to 20 copies per ml of blood. ...Read more
