PapIGrfxHPV ASCU results negative for my pap HPV say (NEGHPV) HPV DNA reflex criteria were not met with this specimen result NO HPV test perform mean?

Normal, no HPV: If I correctly understand the abbreviations, your doctor ordered a pap smear for which HPV testing was to be done if the smear was abnormal. Your pap did not show those abnormalities; therefore HPV testing wasn't done. In other words, it's all good news: your results were fine with nothing to worry about. If you remain uncertain for some reason, contact your doctor's office. ...Read more

Hep B Virus (HBV) DNA Qualitative (Detection) - COBAS TaqMan , Hep C RNA Detection by Taqman detection will be conclusive on 47 days? Any retest need?

Hep B Virus (HBV) DNA Qualitative (Detection) - COBAS TaqMan , Hep C RNA Detection by Taqman detection will be conclusive on 47 days? Any retest need?

No: Both Hepatitis B and C viruses may be detected 30 to 60 days after infection by antigen detection or 60-120 days with antibody testing. Direct HBV DNA and HCV RNA testing can potentially detect infection earlier, within 2-4 weeks after infection, so being tested at 47 days post-exposure with a negative nucleic acid test for both is very likely to be a true negative ...Read more

Is a negative oral hpv test accurate?

Tests, tests: All tests have their limitations. First there is the data collection. Did the doc swab you well? Then was the swab transported to the lab correctly? Then how sensitive was the test? There are many different serotypes of HPV. If you are 28 now hopefully you got 3 Guardasil shots as a teen and are protected. Call your pediatrician and ask his/her nurse if you did? ...Read more

My daughter asked for HPV test w/pap. Test says all norm, even HPV but then says "hpv DNA testing not performed"  huh? Isnt DNA how they test for hpv?

HPV: As a general rule hpv testing by dna hybridization is not done unless the results of the pap smear are equivocal, because of the costs and minimal benefit after a completely normal pap. ...Read more

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Do I have HBV?

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative.  Do I have HBV?

Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus. If her Hep B virus PCR is negative, that means the lab does not find the virus's DNA (genes). If the core antibody is reactive that means her immune system REMEMBERS being infected with Hep B. She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more

Does pap smear test for warts n hpv?

Does pap smear test for warts n hpv?

Usually: Usually the virus is not looked for unless your pap is abnormal. If it is abnormal, the lab I use will do what is called reflex testing for the presence or absence of the hpv virus. If your pap is normal, at his time, there is no recommended treatment for simply having the presence of the virus so unless there are visible lesions or an abnormal pap there is no further action necessary. ...Read more

Does 3 Hiv negative test confirms your HIV negative?

Does 3 Hiv negative test confirms your HIV negative?

Need details: A single nucleic acid test after the interval during which this becomes positive is proof enough that you are not infected. You're young. I trust you'll play safe from now on, and if you continue to have obsessive thoughts that you have become infected, sit down with your physician or someone who's trained in helping you get back into control of these unwanted and unhelpful thoughts. ...Read more
