You have been infected with HIV, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, the germ which causes AIDS. It does not necessarily mean you have full blown AIDS at this time. A positive test means that the virus has entered your body through blood, semen or vaginal secretions and that you can spread HIV to others, even if you have no symptoms.
Wilujeng Sumping - Frequently Asked Questions About Lupus
The screening test for lupus is called the ANA (antinuclear antibody). All lab tests have normal values. If a test result comes back and the value is at the upper limit of normal, this is often referred to as being on the border or borderline. These results are often very difficult to interpret; and the assessment of its importance is dependent on meeting other criterion. It is likely that a borderline positive ANA assumes more importance if other criteria are also present.
It is important to bear in mind that common diseases, such as atrial fibrillation and stroke, occur as a result of the interplay of both environmental (including lifestyle and other health and medical conditions) and inherited risk factors. As a result, having a specific genetic risk factor for a common disease does not mean that one will necessarily develop the disease; and not having a certain risk variant does not eliminate the possibility of developing the disease.
Highlights and FAQ's
Some clinical laboratory's correct their reticulocyte counts by multiply the retic count times the patient/s hemtocrit over a normal hemtocrit - 36% for women and 45% for men. Example: a 7.6% retic count on a male was mutiplied by 30/45, giving a 5.1% corrected retic. If this was a female, it would be 7.6% X 30/36 = 6.4%
American Social Health Association - Learn about STDs/STIs
No. The test for HIV can only tell you if you have been infected or not. Transmission of the virus does not necessarily occur every time exposure occurs. The only way for an individual to tell if he/she has been infected with HIV is to be tested. If you are unsure of your partner's status, you may want to consider talking to him/her about it and using protection (latex condoms or dental dams) to reduce your risk.
Tuberculosis (FAQ) Frequently Asked Questions, Palm Beach Co...
A positive TB test means that someone has been exposed to the TB germ and follow up evaluation is needed. Once a positive TB test has been confirmed to be truly positive, there is no point in having repeat TB tests in the future. They will not hurt you, or cause disease, but will always continue to be positive. BCG vaccine (Bacille Calmette-Guerin) used in countries where TB is endemic, can decrease the severity of TB in children but will not prevent TB infection.
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
First thing: Don't panic! In the United States, living with HIV is no longer an automatic death sentence. Many people are alive and well who were diagnosed many years ago.

The header of the spam didn't have enough information to figure out what IP the spam came from. This happens sometimes on very old or strangely configured email systems. For instance, if you are using a Novell or old Microsoft server, you may have this problem. The problem also occurs with hotmail, but only intermitantly. If this is the problem, you will probably see it with ALL email (unless you use hotmail, then only sometimes).

AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts:
A positive antibody test could mean one of two things. It could mean that a person is infected with hepatitis C and is a chronic carrier. Or, it could mean that the person was infected with hepatits C but has cleared it from his or her body. An antibody test cannot tell anyone which of those two categories applies. Once infected, you will always have hepatitis C antibodies, and therefore will always test positive on a hepatitis C screening test.
Breast Cancer Genetics Network of Michigan FAQ
No, even though a gene mutation may be present, you are not at 100% risk for developing cancer. An individual with a BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 alteration is more likely to develop cancer than an individual without an alteration. However, not every individual who has a BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 alteration will develop cancer, because genes are not the only factor affecting cancer risk.
Screening, FAQs, EHDI, NCBDDD, CDC
A false positive hearing screening test result is when a baby does not have a hearing loss but the newborn does not pass the hearing screening. Hearing screening tests are not meant to diagnose hearing loss in infants. Instead, they are meant to find all infants that might have a hearing loss. Because they are not a diagnostic test, hearing screening tests sometimes misidentify infants as having a hearing loss.
