Preparation for STD tests: 

  • Fasting is NOT required.
  • Urine test is a part of STD screen. Please come to the clinic without voiding urine for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Initial stream of urine (beginning part of urination) is important for STD tests.
  • Initial 10 ml of the urine that washes out the urethra is required.
  • Avoid collecting more than 10 ml. Larger quantity will dilute the sample and may compromise the accuracy of test.
  • Some STDs are tested regionally. For example, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea tested in genitalia will not reveal these infections in throat or rectum.
  •  Relevant sites should be tested independently based on the nature of the exposure.

Theory of the origins of HIV

HIV can cross species from chimps to humans.


Milestones in the Era of Effective HIV Treatment

Zidovudine, the first HIV medication was approved in 1987.  In 1996 the highly active antiretroviral treatment using a triple combination of antivirals was ushered in. 2015 saw WHO recommendation of treatment of all HIV patients regardless of CD4 count.  


HIV RNA tests and fourth generation enzyme immunoassays are superior to rapid tests. 

Rapid HIV tests are not as sensitive as lab-based assays, particularly in patients with acute infection.


HIV early detection tests

HIV RNA (nucleic acid) testing can detect the virus as soon as 7 to 10 days after exposure, compared to several weeks or months for other tests. 


HIV treatment failure and genital shedding of mutant virus

Drug resistant HIV is shed in the genital tract way before the diagnosis of treatment failure is made.  


There are 37 million people around the world living with HIV and 115 million people living with Hepatitis C infection. About 2.3 million are infected with both HIV and Hepatitis C


HIV RNA Test 

RNA test is the gold standard in the diagnosis of acute HIV infection


Neurological complications of Syphilis occur frequently and early in HIV infected. 


Diagnosed HIV: Is it the tip of the iceberg?

Worldwide, 37 million people are infected with HIV and approximately 46% of infections remain undiagnosed.
