Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms human immunodeficiency virus


Avatar m tn Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1/O/2 (HIV-1/O/2) Antibodies, Preliminary Test With Confirmation Methodology: Immunochemiluminometric assay (ICMA); Western blot. Additional Information: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV 1/O/2), the etiologic agent of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), is a cytopathic retrovirus. This test uses recombinant antigen sources and detects antibodies by specific immune binding and subsequent chemiluminescent reaction (ICMA technology).
Avatar f tn Twitching is one of the many possible symptoms of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) or AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), and may occur at any stage of infection with HIV or the development of AIDS. AIDS is defined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as the condition occurring when a person infected with HIV has a T cell count of 200 or less or one of several serious conditions, such as pneumonia, tuberculosis or certain types of cancer.

Avatar n tn t hack it anymore so my exposure was on OCT 7 2012 i tested 29 OCT 2012 the test was HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS (HIV) ANTIBODY/ANTIGEN COMBO (SERUM) Not Detected (by Abbott Architect HIV-1 and HIV-2) That was the result. My body feels really funny I know something is wrong. If I had HIV would this test have shown any indicators of the Virus?
Avatar f tn Thank you..i kind of thought so...just needed to hear it from an expert..
Avatar n tn If it was blood on your food, you must have ordered steak medium rare, HIV stands for HUMAN Immunodeficiency Virus, so it doesn't apply to animals.
Avatar m tn Just to add, HIV is a fragile virus which requires a human host to reproduce. Hence it is termed Human Immunodeficiency Virus. The only way to acquire the virus is by what curfewX mentioned.
Avatar m tn I got CMIA test done for both HIV p24 atigen and antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus type 1/ or type 2 in human serum. My tests came out non reactive. Are these results conclusive for my recent sexual activity or do I need to get tested again?
Avatar n tn HIV = "Human" immunodeficiency virus
Avatar m tn Qualitative detection of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in human plasma. It is intended for use as an aid in diagnosis of HIV-1 infection, including acute or primary infection. VERSANT HIV-1 RNA 3.0 Assay (bDNA) Product: VERSANT HIV-1 RNA 3.
Avatar n tn You cannot transmit HIV through food. HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency virus . It needs human-to-human contact to be transmitted. HIV is a weak virus. It dies immediately when it is exposed to air. It needs a closed system to survive (ie- the human body).It is also worth noting, that even if the food contained blood and even if that blood contained the HIV virus, it still would not have direct access to your blood stream. When you eat food, it is mixed with saliva.
Avatar n tn m worried about the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), it may contain dangerous blood? My thigh wound not, but not in my legs have a fat crack, I am in danger?
Avatar m tn APTIMA HIV-1 RNA Qualitative Kit for HIV Screening The APTIMA HIV-1 RNA Qualitative Assay is an in vitro nucleic acid assay system for the detection of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) in human plasma and serum (HIV and HIV 1 Screening). It is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of HIV-1 infection, including acute or primary infection. Presence of HIV-1 RNA in the plasma or serum of patients without antibodies to HIV-1 is indicative of acute or primary HIV-1 infection.
Avatar m tn Lol. You can't get HIV from a broken dinner plate. No matter how deep the wound. Dinner plates don't carry the HIV virus. It's called HUMAN Immunodeficiency Virus because only a human can infect another human.
Avatar n tn The newly approved test may provide earlier diagnosis of infection because it detects nucleic acid of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) in human plasma, rather than the antibody response to the virus. Presence of HIV-I RNA in the plasma of patients without antibodies to HIV-I is indicative of acute or primary HIV-1 infection. The test, however, is not meant to be used as a stand-alone test for the diagnosis of HIV-1 infection.
