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

I did 4th Generation HIV test after around 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15 weeks of an exposure. Is this 100% conclusive? Can I get back safely to my wife

I did 4th Generation HIV test after around 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15 weeks of an exposure. Is this 100% conclusive? Can I get back safely to my wife

Sero-conversion: The whole concept of delayed sero-conversion dates back to old & sloppy tests. PCR testing now will show virus in the blood with or without antibodies. If you need to cling to the old adages...at 6 months. 99.99% of the population will have developed antibodies after an exposure. Thus the 6 month window. I believe a colleague of mine Lyssette Cardona, MD is in Dubai. She's one of the best!!

I received blowjob from unknown status of person and got tested with tridot HIV test after 60 days it came negative, is 60 days is enough time or not?

HIV Is Hard To Get: You do not need to be tested for HIV if all the contact was receiving oral sex. Now, if you gave the oral sex and had semen in your throat that would be a different story.

I got tested of HIV after 60 days through HIV tridot test nd came negative. My risk exposusre was receiving blowjob from unknown guy. Do I test again?

HIV is Hard to Get: Unless you have another exposure the answer is not going to change. I do not understand why you are asking this question more than once. You cannot get HIV from receiving a blow job.

Non reactive HIV test?

Negative: It means that is negative, in other words: you were not exposed to the HIV virus, unless you are in the "window period". It would be good to know what type of test you had to tell you more about it.

Home HIV test: I believe this is an older test sold for home testing of hiv.

Is 8 weeks HIV test enough?

No: Current recommendations include testing for antibodies at three and six months as well for the rare individual who does not immediately develop measurable antibody titers. If you wish to pay for it you can be tested negative (or positive) immediately by checking for HIV rna.

1.0 A POSITIVE TO HIV TEST?

1.0 A POSITIVE TO HIV TEST?

Probably not: There are at least 20 different HIV blood tests in use around the world, with different cut-off values for positive results. For most or all, 1.0 is negative. Since you know the specific number, you must have a written report; it should provide that information for your test. If it does not, or if you don't understand it, contact the doctor, clinic or laboratory where the test was done.

Are rapid hiv test effective?

Are rapid hiv test effective?

Yes, but...: ...enough time must have passed since the last possible exposure. The laboratory blood tests all are conclusive within 6-8 weeks, and the 4th generation ("duo", "combo") tests at 4 weeks. The oral fluids home test takes longest of all, up to 3 months to be conclusive. So if you are concerned about a recent exposure, best to go to a doctor's office for proper counseling and testing.

Is a 1 month HIV test accurate?

HIV: Testing for antibodies should be repeated at 3 and 6 months after exposure. The basic tests are very sensitive, but some patients are slow to develop antibodies. If you want a far more specific and definitive way of reassuring yourself ask for a PCR for HIV RNA. It is a little pricey.

How accurate 10 weeks HIV test?

How accurate 10 weeks HIV test?

HIV: The new 4th generation testing for antibodies is incredibly accurate by 10-12 weeks, but there is always that rare individual who has delayed antibody response and may not be positive for up to 6 mos. If one wishes to be certain they can undergo pcr for hiv-rna ($$$) which is definitive within 2-4 weeks or earlier.

Hiv test in 70 days conclusive?

Depends on the test: And results. Any of the tests for HIV nucleic acid, HIV antigen or HIV antibody, if positive, is conclusive of HIV infection. Negative test for HIV nucleic acid would essentially rule out HIV infection. A negative test for antigen and antibody will not rule out HIV infection.

Is 6 months HIV test conclusive?

Is 6 months HIV test conclusive?

Depends on the test: A test for HIV nucleic acid would be conclusive, if positive or negative. An antibody test would be about 99% conclusive if negative, 100% conclusive if positive.

Is 4 months HIV test conclusive?

Depends on the test: And the result. A positive result for antibody, HIV antigen or HIV nucleic acid is conclusive in documenting infection. A negative nucleic acid or HIV antigen will more or less rule out hiv. A negative antibody test would not be conclusive for ruling out hiv.

Is the new OTC HIV test reliable?

Yes, but...: It's a good test, but has a lower sensitivity than standard tests, meaning that there can be false negatives. As with any rapid test, false positives can also occur. Following the instructions very carefully will help reduce the chances of a false negative test. Any positive test should be confirmed with a standard test.
