Can you please tell me how far they are true?
Avatar n tn However (CATIE, Canadian Aids Treatment Information Exchange) the governing body for HIV research in Canada says a duo test is conclusive at 28 days or anytime after. I personally spoke with the medical director and she stated the window period is 4 weeks for the Duo test. That information is also stated by HIV experts such as Dr. Handsfield and Dr. Hook (World reknowned HIV experts) based on numerous seroconversion panel studies. The 90 day window period refers strictly to Antibody only tests.

Avatar f tn Welcome to the discussion group. I see you're in Canada. Do you know the name of the trial you're in and how the 'arms" are broken up. Also, how do you know what arm you're in as they are usually blinded for some time.
Avatar m tn Today, HIV should not progress to AIDS with treatment. You have neither so it does not concern you.

Avatar n tn Hi Sleep disturbances may be caused by underlying physical or psychiatric disorders. Hence, symptomatic treatment of insomnia should be initiated only after a careful evaluation of the patient. The failure of insomnia to remit after 7-10 days of treatment may indicate the presence of a primary psychiatric and/or medical illness that should be evaluated. Both Ambien and Lunesta are used to treat insomnia.

Avatar f tn We live in New Brunswick and the drug is still under review with our provincial drug plan and it is not an approved treatment on our regular medical insurance at work. The only option I can think of is assistance through the drug company but I was wondering if any fellow Canucks knew of how long the wait is for a typical review under a provincial health plan? I called our plan here but could not even get a time frame for the process. Thanks very much!
4355200 tn?1354593144 Hi all. I have some questions about cost of treatment. My husband's company sold this month and we are trying to decide between two different insurance programs (both PPO). I have no idea what I'm looking at cost wise and it will make a difference in which one we go with. I'm Genotype 1a-CT, Stage 2, Grade 3. Assuming I do triple therapy for 48 weeks, any general estimates? I hate dealing with this part of it. I told my husband to just shoot me and bury my by my two cats.
Avatar m tn we are only able to finsh to week 24 and then fair pharmacare wants us to pay 10000$ deductable , we are no where near able to pay this as hubby is on medical leave from work and even if he wasnt we are still a family of 6 on 1 income , not sure what to do as hubby is und and has been since week 12 , what is the likely hood of it not coming back now if he were to stop treatment ??
Avatar n tn It was most likely a combo test since that is the standard test given in Canada (I live in Canada) All blood tests in Canada are 4th gen and only rapid tests are 3rd gen. I confirmed this with an HIV clinic. Remote areas might not use the 4th gen but in Ontario I would definitely say it was a 4th gen. Your results are conclusive. 12 months is only if you are using antibody only testing. I highly suspect you had a duo/combo test.
