Hi Terri! Quick follow up Qs.
1. Is there any known estimate of what percent of infected people never make detectable antibody? I realize that may be kind of hard to study. I saw Dr. Hansfield say on medhelp that it could be up to 10% of hsv2 infected people but he later said it was probably closer to 2-3 percent. Which do you think is more accurate?
2. I’ve read that you’ve seen 9 or 10 people that have swab tested positive that were negative by western blot. Did all of these people wait at least 12 weeks and not take antiviral therapy in other words were they all a complete mystery as to why they would test negative?
