  • Elite controller change window period?

    I know ECs are very rare, was just wondering if it changed the 3 month window period? Thanks!

    Hello Browndoor20,
    Thank you for your inquiry.

    According to US National Library of Medicine, an elite controller (EC) is a person diagnosed with HIV whose immune system keeps viral load undetectable for more many years without ART.

    A window period is the time taken from when you are infected to when you can test positive for HIV. In regards to that, the 3 month window period is not relevant.
    To answer your question, EC does not effect window period at all.

    Thank you.
