Roche’s cobas TaqScreen MPX Test gains US FDA approval
Care to make a wager on the result? I continue to look forward to the day that you accept the truly wonderful news of your definitive HIV-negative status. I happen to be reading the news today about a new FDA approved test that will finally pick up type “O” strains that are increasing in the US.
What are your thoughts on retesting? Would the older tests still have picked up on the strain weakly or perhaps not at all? I see no reason for retesting and would consider your negative results definitive and conclusive. We are pleased to introduce it in the U. The test runs on the fully automated, real-time PCR cobas s system, designed to increase processing efficiency with a unique modular design and ready to use reagents. It is estimated thatinfected persons are unaware of their HIV status.

Additional information is available on the Internet at http: You don’t cogas HIV I just made those up. Don’t start worrying about them! Regarding group O testing, you could get an Abbott RealTime test.
It’s among the most sensitive viral load tests available. It has demonstrated the ability to detect diverse group M subtypes of HIV including all known non-B subtypes as well as group N and O isolates. I’m not recommending you actually need, or that you should get, this test. I’m merely being a nice guy and helping you with your Internet research on a disease that you could not possibly have.
I’m assuming since HIV-2 didn’t pan out, you’re now fixated on group O. I guess that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s followed your angst-filled story to date. Why don’t I think you have group O? Primarily because I doubt you schtoooped a person from either Cameroon or Gabon.
Glad to hear my assessment has proven to be correct so far. You do not need HIV-2 viral load testing, but I can advise in advance that it, too, will be undetectable negative.
I’m a bit perplexed by your comment: I’m sick of you because I’m responding? Jon, I’m not sick of you and you are not HIV infected. Thank you for taking the time to write back. As anticipated, your CD4 count is completely normal.
I’m delighted you have decided to get counseling psychotherapy. It is indeed the first mpd on your path back to both emotional and physical well-being. Bring a copy of these questions and atqscreen responses with you to your first visit and share them with tsst psychiatrist. It will help focus your treatment and speed your recovery. I will add your post to the many others in the archives from those who after being absolutely convinced beyond any shadow of a doubt they were HIV infected eventually realized they were HIV negative.
You tend to write to my fairly often and if I posted all of your reports, I wouldn’t have time to answer other questioners. My assessment of your situation remains unchanged. HIV is not your problem. You’ve seen multiple physicians, all of whom have come to the exact same conclusion: You are HIV negative.
It’s unfortunate that despite overwhelming and irrefutable evidence that you are HIV negative, you continue to believe you are infected. You are not the “one in a zillion. As it turns out, none of tasscreen are! I’m not denying your symptoms.
I’m merely advising you that HIV is not the cause. My advice to you also remains the same. You need the help of a psychiatrist to help you cope with your irrational fears and to accept the reality of your Ttaqscreen status. The ER physician who ordered a CD4 count shouldn’t have. In your case there is no clinical indication for that test.
It is my sincere hope that you will follow my advice since you continue to post comments vobas updates here, I can only yaqscreen you respect my opinion and experience and that you accept the truly wonderful news of cobss definitively negative HIV status.
Jon, even though you conclusively do not have HIV, you do indeed have a very significant medical problem that requires ongoing treatment. Stop chasing a disease you do not have and get the psychiatric help you need to restore both your physical and mental well-being.
I wouldn’t call this “the end.
I again urge you to follow that path and consider this the beginning rather than an end. It’s unfortunate you continue to perseverate on a disease that you could taqsceeen possibly have. Your problem is psychiatric, not virologic. I agree you are clinically depressed. It’s unfortunate you are one of the 47 million Americans without health care insurance. Remember to support Obama’s efforts to reform healthcare and make insurance available to all!
What you need is psychotherapy counselingnot additional, totally unwarranted HIV tests. Continuing to chase after this an HIV diagnosis despite overwhelming and irrefutable evidence that you are HIV negative will only make your condition worse.
The road back to health and happiness is clear. It’s up to you if you choose to take it.
