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

Does getting a non-reactive result on an HIV test mean negative? Even with that result can you still be infected?

Does getting a non-reactive result on an HIV test mean negative? Even with that result can you still be infected?

Yes,: Yes, non-reactive is negative. But you need to know a little more. There are two main ways of looking for HIV infection--by looking for the body's response to the virus (antibody tests) and looking directly for the virus. In the case of antibody tests (such as elisa and western blot) it may take 6-12 weeks to become "positive" (or rarely up to 6 months), so you can be "non-reactive" shortly after catching the disease, but still be harboring it. The test for the virus itself becomes positive much earlier in an infection, but is not generally described as "non-reactive" when it is negative. ...Read more

Hiv ag/ab combo : non reactive, patient s/co: 0.23 (ref : reactive >=1.0 s/co). What does this mean. After 1 year of exposure.

Not infected: S/co is a way of saying that your value is 23% of the cutoff that would make it positive. This does not mean you have a little bit of the virus, it's just the way that the test works in today's age of molecular medicine. ...Read more

I took a 5th gen Ag/Ab HIV test 39 days post possible exposure. Result was non-reactive. Am I ok?

Conclusive HIV test: "Fifth generation" for an HIV test is marketing hype -- the manufacturer calls their new test 5th gen, but it's still bacially the same as all other 4th generation tests. Results of 4th gen HIV tests are usually conclusive after 4 weeks and always by 6 weeks (42 days). But 39 days is close enough; for sure you didn't catch HIV. ...Read more

My HIV test report say Non reactive by RIT Methods are mentioned. 1) Rapid immunochromatographic test 2)ELFA Why RIT mentioned specifically in result?

It is common,: Especially in HIV testing where there are several methods, to indicate which method is used. There are at least 4 generations of HIV tests....each successive generation provides more accuracy and earlier definitive results. The two methods mentioned in your question are earlier generation tests; final follow-up testing at least at 3 months after exposure, and possibly 12 months, may be recommended ...Read more

Not entirely: What test did you get? Antibodies to hiv, the usual test, take variable amounts of time to develop in different people. If you are antibody negative one year after exposure that would be more or less safe. Please consult your doctor for getting nucleic acid test that turns positive sooner, of one is infected. ...Read more

Report value result is cut of index 0.553 reference range cut of index 0.90 non reactive negative for HIV 1 and HIV 2 what is meaning of 0.553 n 0.90?

Antibody Testing: This sounds like a good question. This is the way antibody testing is reported by labs when searching for viral infections.

If the antibody response is not acute enough one is not considered to be infected.

Any further testing in this case should be based upon risk and recent experience. One can also be tested by searching for the genetic material of the HIV virus instead of antibody testing. ...Read more

Hi I had HIV 1&2 lab test and the results are non reactive (0.347) cutt off rate is 1.0 test performed my ECLIA, I m so worried is it higher. Please help me?

Likely negative: ELISA is highly accurate, almost 99%. So please be reassured. Repeat the test in four weeks or so to ensure it remains negative. If you have not been sick with a fever, rash, sore throat, enlarged glands, chills, night sweats etc. In the last two months, then the risk of being infected in last two months is even lower. ...Read more

If I am having vdrl weekly reactive and HIV negative at present time in future I can get HIV positive result..

Yes: Your vdrl has nothing to do with hiv. It is a syphilis test that is often false positive. You may contract HIV sometime in the future, or you may have it now but not yet seroconverted. If you're worried about the unprotected sex, and it was recent, ssk whether a pcr is in order. Love safely and wisely, and best wishes to you. ...Read more

When a blood cultuce results comes back saying you have malaria +3, does that mean HIV positive as well?

When a blood cultuce results comes back saying you have malaria +3, does that mean HIV positive as well?

Not related: The test for malaria is where a thin film of blood is examined through a microscope after being stained and the number of red blood cells that are infected with the malaria parasite are counted. 3+ would mean a fairly high number. This test has no relation to an HIV test, which is entirely different. ...Read more
