Laboratory diagnostics of HIV continue to evolve with antigen/antibody and molecular methods becoming increasingly more sensitive, specific, and rapid. Moreover, laboratory implementation of the CDC/APHL testing algorithm incorporating these assays may result in improved diagnosis of acute HIV but may also be challenging to interpret. The overall goal of this webinar is to discuss diagnostic methods for HIV and the current testing algorithm through the presentation of actual clinical cases. The webinar will conclude with a brief discussion of emerging or novel diagnostic methods and their impact on HIV diagnosis.
