A New Perspective on HIV Diagnostics: Reinterpretation in the Age of Early Treatment

Clin. Microbiol. October 2019 V.57 N.10

Commentary

Early treatment of HIV infection with antiretroviral therapy in recently identified HIV-infected individuals reduces viral replication and decreases the risk of transmission.

The screening and supplemental, confirmatory assays used to identify infection are influenced by early treatment and may obscure a clear diagnosis of HIV infection.
