Avatar m tn Has anyone else heard and/or know of the availability of the 4th generation New Architect Hiv ag/ab combo asay test recently approved by the CDC ..? Apparently this will put us in line with the U.K. , Australia and others to be in the forefront of testing . If true this will dramatically reduce wait times for hiv detection , one could say they're listening to the physicians on the forefront of Hiv prevention / detection .
Avatar m tn Applecanary. I know the correct protocol. The wrong diagnosis link is incorrect. I trust the CDC guidelines. Look them up.
Avatar f tn The CDC keeps giving research money to the same Lyme deniers over and over, but generally will not fund any study that looks to question the official positions on Lyme. The big medical journals also refuse to publish anything that questions or contradicts the official positions. (Some of the same people who are on the IDSA Lyme committee are also on these editorial boards). The CD57 is controversial because it was proposed as a useful tool in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease by Dr.
Avatar n tn In your opinion, as I have just started treatment today, should I contact the medical provider and let her know that CDC guidelines has changed. Thanks for response.
Avatar n tn Wrong, The manufacture and the FDA sets the guidelines on the data collected on their testing research. The CDC follows the guidelines set by the manufacture and the FDA. Now if you are going to post responses make sure you know what you are talking about before replying.
Avatar n tn The CDC have not changed their guidelines on window periods. It may be considered overly conservative by most experts, but 3 months is still what they advise to be absolutely certain.
Avatar m tn This community forum uses the CDC 3months guidelines to define a test result being conclusive. Sure other countries will have different guidelines ( even on the expert forum here the docs will say 28 days+ for a conclusive result) however for the purposes of this forum, we will always advise a 3 months test with 6 weeks being a good indicator of your status.
Avatar m tn Thanks guys. I appreciate your input.

Avatar m tn Can someone from the experts here show me some link of cdc guidelines from the official website of cdc of fda saying that the window period is 3 months. i had given this link: Page 11 #4 In an adult, a positive HIV antibody test result means that the person is infected, a person with a negative or inconclusive result may be in the “window for 4 to 6 weeks but occasionally up to 3 months after HIV exposure.
Avatar m tn // Post-test discussion The need for a repeat HIV test if still within the window period after a specific exposure should be discussed. Although fourth generation tests shorten the time from exposure to seroconversion a repeat test at three months is still recommended to definitively exclude HIV infection.
Avatar f tn Hello ! According to Dr Hook and Dr Handsfield, recommended time for testing after PEP is 6 weeks and 3 months and they follow CDC guidelines. Also 28 days don't rule out all infections hence CDC recently shortened the window for 4th Gen tests down to 45days from 90 days.
Avatar n tn t aware of this site (which is wonderful), and tried to follow the web and CDC for what to do. At 6 months (actually 178 days) I had HIV antibody testing done for HIV 1 and 2. The results were negative. Again, I have been going by the guidelines that I could find which included the CDC, and now in my reading I see that it is still possible to get a positive result after 6 months (I don't know if they mean up to 6 months or after 6 months and, if so, until when?).
Avatar m tn he show me some guidelines from cdc website and the fda approved brochure of the oraquick test stating that 97% of people developed antibody and 3% can take up to 6 months. But i beg to dis agree w/ this doctor and i convince to see another doctor at that the same day. The doctor test me w/ the same oraquick test and he said to me its conclusive.
Avatar f tn Would this be enough time for it to be sufficient? Also I am a bit confused about the CDC guidelines. Do they say that a 4th gen lab test at 45+ days is sufficient ?
Avatar m tn Hunter Handsfield, MD as one of the writers of the 2006 CDC Revised Recommendations for HIV Testing of Adults, Adolescents, and Pregnant Women in Health-Care Settings. So, my question is ¿is he wrong on his statements? French guideline establishes 6 weeks as conclusive with the Duo test ¿why?
Avatar n tn I like what everyone has to say - but this is the deal, in my opinion. Why would I want to post on a forum and be told information I already know, ie. "3 months test is conclusive"? When I take the time to post on the forum and explain my situation, I'd really appreciate more than a copy-and-paste from the CDC website. I've looked at the CDC website, I've read the manufacturers inserts, I've read through the forums...
Avatar m tn Thanks for the clarification. But why do you ignore the national recommendation on oral sex then. There is not a single country on this planet whose guidelines say oral sex (atleast giving oral sex) is not a risk for HIV. Which country's guidelines are you following here can you give a reference please. Perhaps there is a greater chance of getting infected from giving oral sex than getting a false negative DUO test at 4-6 weeks.
