An alert regarding Autoimmune Disease and other conditions that may lead to POSITIVE FALSE
I talked to two doctors in the House of AIDS, where I get treatment and they were prescriptive in saying that there is an extension of the window period for Autoimmune diseases account.
I'm putting this text before the comments to let people on alert to meet claims, even mine, on this point.
DISEASE AUTO IMMUNE DOES NOT EXTEND THE WINDOW IMMUNE TO 120 180 OR DAYS, HOW MUCH IF YOU HAVE STATED HERE. IN THIS WEBSITE
I'll correct this error in all comments putting this same statement.
However, my hands no longer respond well to nerve impulses and I have suffered ate limitations of communication because I can only type with the index fingers of both hands making use of the arms to move the fingers on the keys.
This makes the tiring and painful typing and even I have a limit, though mentally expanded to endure the pain and need some encouragement and rest before starting it. People I took suffering chancelando this information I beg forgiveness. It was rather a mistake. But it was committed by an act of good faith.
Let me explain further, I found the source of the error and it may have been placed here by qq person and I will not make a witch hunt.
In the health ministry's website there is this text
It is most accomplished to diagnose the disease. In it, laboratory professionals search for antibodies against HIV in the patient's blood. If a sample does not have any antibody, the negative result is given to the patient. If an anti-HIV antibody is detected in the blood, another additional test, the confirmatory test, is required. Are used as confirmatory tests, the Western Blot, the indirect Immunofluorescence Test for HIV-1 and the immunoblot. That's because, sometimes, the tests can give false-positive results as a result of some diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disease and some types of cancer.
Factors that cause false-positive resultsSome of exams existing in Brazil to diagnose HIV infection seek anti-HIV antibodies in blood samples. Despite their effectiveness, they may present false positives in some cases. Therefore, it is important for the patient to undergo new test.
laboratory experts have identified some factors that interfere with test results. Are they:
- Vaccine against influenza A H1N1;
- Rheumatoid arthritis;
- Autoimmune diseases (systemic lupus erythematosus, connective tissue disease and scleroderma);
- Primary sclerosing cholangitis;
- Interferon therapy in hemodialysis patients;
- Stevens-Johnson syndrome;
- antimicrosomal antibody;
- Antibodies HLA (class I and II);
- acute viral infection;
- passive acquisition of anti-HIV antibodies (from mother to child);
- malignant tumors;
- Other retroviruses;
- Multiple blood transfusions;
- Smooth muscle antibody.
