HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...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?

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

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?

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

Question regarding a standard RPR test does an RPR test effectively detect any strains of the herpes viruses?

No: Rpr test done for syphilis. It does not detect or tells about herpes infection. Serologic test or culture can tell about herpes infection. ...Read more

Had HSV DNA PCR test with CSF? Negative. Also had HSV 1/2 antibody (IgM), IFA with reflex to Titer, CSF. Negative. Can I still have HSV 1 or 2?

No HSV in CNS: With these tests, you're obviously under a doctor's care, maybe including an infectious diseases specialist or neurologist. They can answer these questions best. But these results effectively rule out HSV infection of your central nervous system. Something else is causing the problem. That said, the HSV IgM test is notoriously unreliable. You probably also had an IgG test, probably negative. ...Read more

Please interpret-
C.trachomatis RNA TMA Result: Detected. Standard range: Not detected. Test performed using the Aptima Combo2 (R) assay gen-probe(r)

You have chlamydia: "Detected" means the test found chlamydia -- i.e. a positive result. Return to the doctor or clinic where the test was done for treatment. (If you tested yourself at a lab, see a doctor or clinic ASAP.) Your current or recent sex partner(s) also need treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

HSV 1 positive through blood test =[LIAISON assay using chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) tech.] Index=1.47, how likely is it false positive?

HSV 1 positive through blood test =[LIAISON assay using chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) tech.]  Index=1.47, how likely is it false positive?

Not false positive: False positive tests for HSV1 are very rare. Half of all persons your age have positive tests, so nothing unusual there. Most likely from an oral infection in the distant past. ...Read more

"had a pap smear in conjunction with an HPV test. Lab returned pap test negative for malignancy. Does result include HPV results?

"had a pap smear in conjunction with an HPV test. Lab returned pap test negative for malignancy. Does result include HPV results?

No.: The "negative for malignancy" refers to the pap. The high-risk hpv test in conjunction with is would be reported as positive or negative. Check with your doctor's office to get that result. The good news for you is that with your normal pap results if your hpv test is negative you can safely extend pap smear screening to up to 5 years. Annual exams are still advised. ...Read more

HIV NEGATIVE combo (antibody + antigen) tests at 4,6,10,13,14 weeks and PCR RNA VL UNDETECTED (14 weeks) white tongue. Risk: gay deep kiss. Am I HIV-?

HIV NEGATIVE combo (antibody + antigen) tests at 4,6,10,13,14 weeks and PCR RNA VL UNDETECTED (14 weeks) white tongue. Risk: gay deep kiss. Am I HIV-?

You are HIV-neg: I hope this is good news. "White tongue" is usually bacteria, and you may be able to scrape them off with a piece of dental floss held tight. You can trust the test if it is your only exposure. I hope you're comfortable with your sexuality and that you're pleased to have shared a kiss -- guys of all orientations may enjoy perhaps kissing a buddy, and nobody's ever gotten HIV by kissing. ...Read more

HSV 1+2 Serum test resut- 1.77 & HSV Type 1+2 PCR DNA result Negative. Can't understand the difference between two results.

HSV 1+2 Serum test resut- 1.77 & HSV Type 1+2 PCR DNA result Negative. Can't understand the difference between two results.

Need details: PCR will detect herpes virus if present on the skin. If no virus is shedding at the time, then it shows negative. But herpes is present in a dormant form in a nerve and is detected by noting serum antibodies. Antibodies are specific immunity which contain the virus but fail to reach inside a nerve. When the virus sometimes comes out onto the skin it can be detected by PCR. When the virus is only i ...Read more

Can you please explain the following results HSV1 IgM Screen NegativeHSV2 Igm Screen NegativeHSV1 IgG Type Spec 14.14HSV2 IgG Type Spec 0.14?

HSV 1 IgG: HSV 1 is the virus associated with cold sores. 90% of american test positive for past exposure. HSV 2 is genital herpes. IgM refers to a new antibody formed from recent infection. IgG refers to an old antibody from past exposure. You are positive for only HSV1 IgG. So just like 90% of Americans you have been exposure to HSV1 in the past. You do not have HSV2. ...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

Can a quantitative HIV DNA test that looks for the virus differentiate HIV 1 from HIV 2 ?

Can a quantitative HIV DNA test that looks for the virus differentiate HIV 1 from HIV 2 ?

No: This is determined predominantly by antibody testing rather than by PCR for HIV RNA (This is an RNA virus). The latter test does not differentiate serotypes. Type 2 is very rare outside of Africa and seems more difficult to transmit. There are also numerous subtypes of both Types 1 & 2 and this becomes quite complex since this virus mutates continuously. ...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

All antibody tests negative at around the 10 week mark except for RNA PCR test which says RNA detected, below 20 copies/ml instead of undetected.

Unclear question: If you are concerned about HIV tests, a negative result at 10 weeks after exposure is not definitive. You should repeat the tests at 6 months after exposure. Wish you good health! ...Read more

My friend test std, results . chlamydia trachomatis  positive, abnormal andnon  reactive negative.  Hsv 2  igG.   2.69.    HSV  1 igG.   37.90. the me?

What's the question?: You don't ask a question -- I'm not sure what information you're looking for. These HSV test results are positive for both HSV1 and HSV2. However, when the HSV1 IgG antibody test is very strongly positive and the HSV2 result is much lower, as in your friend, the HSV2 result sometimes is false. Additional testing, preferably with a Western blot test, can sort it out. ...Read more
