RSA Study: Preliminary Conclusions
The number of HIV specimens identified in the RNA-window (1) and the p24-window (1) is lower than what was anticipated.
The role of routine HIV p24 antigen testing should be re-evaluated.
Automation and cost might be factors that will influence the decision on whether or not to do routine NAT testing.
