What Does This Mean Hiv 1 Screen 4 Th Generation Wrfx Non Reactive
Likely means: What it likely mean's is that 1) you've been vaccinated against hepatitis A 2) you've had a previous exposure to hepatitis A 3) this is much less likely, you have some other antibody that is cross reacting with the hepatitis A test(again very rare) Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Normal: It means you don't have antibodies. This is normal. ...Read more
My Hepatitis C Antibody test was non reactive. The results included a comment "Does not exclude early acute HCV infection". What does this mean?
See below: It takes the body variable period of time to make antibodies in response to an infection. In the case of Hep C it may take a few weeks from the time of infection to the time when the body makes antibodies. If you are concerned about have been exposed to Hep C, you may wish to repeat the test in about 6 months. ...Read more
Antibodies: A positive herpes igg means you have antibodies to the herpes virus. If you test positive for igg and negative for igm, your herpes infection is probably not recent - i.e. From the past 2 months. The test is not always accurate; if you have never had a herpes infection it could be a false positive, and you should have it repeated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My blood results showed I was non-reactive for HIV 1 & 2, hcv, hbsag, vdrl and malaria. What does this mean?
HBsAg serum test shows reactive (CMIA 1.35). What does this mean? Also I'm 37 weeks pregnant, will it affect my baby?
If my results says anti-hcv - he c antibody reactive [non-reacti] finale what exactly does that mean ?
Hepatitis C: A repeatedly reactive hepatitis C antibody test means that you either have a current hepatitis C infection or a past infection that has resolved, or possibly a false positive test. You need more detailed testing to sort this out. There are effective treatments for hepatitis C now. It is a serious disease if left untreated. Do not ignore this. See your doctor for further testing. Good luck. ...Read more
What does low IgG subclass 1 mean, 219 (422-1292) & IGM serum is high, 486 (40-230). Please explain what this means. I am always tired & I take b12.
See an immunologist: A 63 year old female with low IgG subclass 1 and elevated IgM, also with fatigue. A low IgG1 with normal total IgG could indicate a selective IgG subclass deficiency. But this value alone doesn't really tell us much. You need further evaluation by an immunologist to take a good history, learn about your infectious history, and obtain more loans - specifically response to vaccine challenge. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My laboratory test is hbag is 5529 reactive and my anti-hbs is <2.00 nonreactive while hb ag II is .38 nonreactive, what does this mean ?
Missing letters: I would love to clear this for you but your tests are missing some very important letters: hb__ag = 5529; anti-hbs <2.00 nonreactive means you do not have protection against hepatitis b; hb__ag = 0.38 nonreactive, i really cannot tell you unless I have the missing letters. It can either be a "e" or a "c". ...Read more
What should mean when anti-hcv non-reactive 0.15 cutoff value 1.0
and hbsag non- reactive 0.16 cutoff value 1.0
please let me know?
My laboratory test is hbag is 5529 reactive and my anti-hbs is <2.00 nonreactive while hb ag II is .38 nonreactive, what does this mean?
I tested positive for HBsAG and my IgM anti hbc value is 0.76 s/co. What does it mean? Acute or chronic?
Probably chronic: Hbv markers are used to distinguish actively infected from immunity, the latter include antibody to surface antigen (hbsab) and to the core antigen (hbcab). Some tests detect part of the virus, such as surface antigen (hbsag), the core antigen, or hbv dna. The presence of hbsag indicates that the person is potentially infectious, regardless of the hbcab status and is common in hbv carriers. ...Read more
Herpes: Your test results indicate that you were exposed to Herpes virus at some point in your life, not sure when. The low IgM might suggest that it's not recent exposure, but IgM in this virus is not very accurate or useful. Your test did not specify whether your exposure came from type 1 or type 2 or both. If you have an outbreak ask your doctor for treatment medication. ...Read more
I had a blood test..Hsv 1 IgG type specific.. Results 4.65 (0.00- 0.90 index)h..What does mean. Do I have an std?
Welcome to the club!: Roughly half of all adults in the US have positive blood tests for HSV1 -- up to 70% at your age of 67. So welcome to a club with 150 million members! Most of these infections are oral, although some are genital. The majority are asymptomatic and remain that way, but many have recurrent oral herpes (cold sores, fever blisters). Without symptoms, HSV1 is rarely transmitted to other persons. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does cobas taqman v 2 for HIV 1 RNA check for all groups N, O, P, M and all subtypes of M. If not, what it doesn't check. Please answer, Thanks?
A technical question: I am looking at the Roche website regarding this test and it says this test, "Quantifies the clinically significant HIV-1 groups and subtypes with full subtype coverage and quantifications of HIV-1 groups O and M" It is a confirmatory, not screening test. I believe you would need to contact the company if you need more specific information than this. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Does a negative hiv-1 western blot at 6 months (no ELISA was completed only wb) indicate no hiv-2 as well? Or should I screen again?
Western blot: Most sensitive test available. Negative excellent.Get a more detailed answer ›
I just had an HIV 1/2 eia antibody screen w/ reflexes. Can you explain how this test works? Are there any better tests?
Viral Testing: To test for many infections we look for antibodies (your body's reaction to something new or foreign). In the case of HIV infection these antibodies can take three to six months to be positive on a test. This old fashioned test is a reliable and common screening tool. But, it is not the best test if one is possibly exposed. We now send HIV genetic tests which can be positive by day 21 post expos. ...Read more
I took a HIV-1/2 Fourth Generation test and the results were reactive. Week later my HIV RNA, QL TMA came back negative. What does this mean?
What does a nonreactive/neg HIV 1/2 AG/AB 4th GEN/RFL mean? Why does it say it does not exclude HIV and that seroconversion is variable?
For the lawyers: Nobody knows how often the new HIV tests turn positive "late" because nobody really knows who's done what other risky stuff and not told about it. I'd accept negative / nonreactive results if the usual time frame for the test has lapsed, be thankful for good health, love safely from now on, and share the memory of whatever happened as something to be treasured. ...Read more
Im concern i had labs drawn and one of the test hiv-1 antibody value <1.00 and range <1.00 but the result says "negative". What doea this mean?
Potential exposure 2-5 yrs ago. Tested 2× w/4th gen w/refx, reactive. Then Hiv 1&2 Ab neg, hiv1 rna neg. western blot being run. thoughts on dx?
Is ELISA test for HIV 1 & 2 antibodies conclusive after 8-9 weeks of exposure? Does NON-REACTIVE mean NEGATIVE?
ELISA for HIV: The ELISA test is not conclusive after any amount of time. The ELISA is a screening test and if it comes back positive, a Western blot will need to be done. Non-reactive is a good thing to be and it does mean that you are negative for HIV virus. Although there is a window period when you can have the HIV virus but still have a nonreactive result. Another test may be needed in that case. Suerte ...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
