Undetectable viral load: Everything you need to know

Hematology - Δευ, 12/03/2018 - 23:00
A person has an undetectable viral load when there are so few viral copies of HIV in their blood that a blood test cannot detect them. This is good for a person’s overall health and means that they cannot transmit the virus to another person. Learn more about an undetectable viral load and how doctors measure it here.
