Hi Terri, thank you for your response. I was indeed referring to the UW test kit, yes, not some other take home test.
The study you shared refers to EIA tests, however I’m referencing the HerpesSelect test specifically which I don’t see referenced in the paper above. In Table 1 in the paper entitled “Screening for Genital Herpes Simplex:
Brief Update for the U.S. Preventive
Services Task Force” it doesn’t seem that they’re looking at the test results for people who already are symptomatic. Would you be able to provide the false negative/positive rate for the HerpesSelect in an asymptomatic individual? THANK YOU so much!
