p24 Hiv-1 gp41 and Hiv-2 gp36
« on: July 19, 2012, 11:22:31 AM »
I had sex with a sex worker and after sex I remove the condom with my hands some vaginal fluid on my hands or not i Forget But same hands touch open cuts or sores on the body. I got some symtome after 3 weeks coughing about 3 week , Chest pain, Small white spots on the arms and 2,3 days red spots on the arms. . 11 weeks after I have white spots growing on my upper lip inside.
I test 6 weeks (46 day) HIv Duo --- Negative
9 Weeks Antibody test ------ Negative
I am Very Scared


I got my result at 13 week HIV DOU ultra   

My Result
Index of antibody =0.07
Index of P24 Antigen =0.00
Threshold and interpretation of result:
Index i interpretation
i less than 0.25 Non-reactive for Antigen (P24)And Antibody
i grater than 0.25 Reactive for Antigen (P24) Or Antibody

Comments:
The kit simultaneously detects:
i)Hiv-1 antibody(lgm &lgm class of sub-type O & gp41) and Hiv-2
antibody(lgG class of gp36)
ii)P24 antigen
*The test aims to reduce the window period and picks the patient in
very early stage.
* It is a screening test and need to be confirmed by a confirmatory
test as per legislation.

 I am POSITIVE...???

Prem,

You are hiv negative, which is no surprise. You did not have a risk for hiv infection.

Your test results definitely mean you do not have hiv. You are hiv negative.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

prem,

Why do your symptoms HAVE to be caused by hiv? Plenty of things can make you unwell. Whatever is making you unwell is NOT hiv. You have ruled hiv out as a possible cause.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection.

You do NOT have hiv. You are conclusively hiv negative. The testing window period for hiv is THREE months, not six. Even if you did have a risk - you did NOT have a risk - you would still be conclusively hiv negative.

Go to a doctor to find out what, if anything, is wrong with you. What ever that may be, it is NOT hiv.

YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV!!!

CDC, say the following HIV antigens: p24, gp41, or gp120/160.  Specimens that are repeatedly reactive by EIA and Western blot are considered HIV-positive.

So, my due test is

The kit simultaneously detects:
i)Hiv-1 antibody(lgm &lgm class of sub-type O & gp41) and Hiv-2
antibody(lgG class of gp36)
ii)P24 antigen

Sub-type O & gp41 and lgG calss of gp36  is reactive or Non-reactive  ???

so tell me clearly ??

Prem,

I have already told you that you are hiv negative. You do not have hiv.

You never even had a risk in the first place, so your negative results are no surprise.

What does this comment mean?:

COMMENT:The kit simultaneously detects:
i)HIV-1 antibodies (lgG & lgM class of sub-type O & gp41) and HIV-2 antibodies (lgG class of gp36)
ii) P24 antigen
*The test aims to reduce the window period and picks the patient in very early stage.
Note:High Antibody level may mask the antigen result and vice versa. The test value is not displayed for the masked result and the message ND - NOT DETERMINABLE

Prem,

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep everything in one thread. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.




It means the test looks for hiv1 and hiv2 as well as the p24 antigen.

You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection.

You do NOT have hiv. You are conclusively hiv negative.

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.


Please consider yourself warned!
