TREATMENT BRIEFS: Correction: p24 Antigen Tests


GMHC Treatment Issues 1992 Feb 10; 6(2): 8

p24 antigen tests are not available through the New York City or State Departments of Health, and Wadsworth Labs by any formal mechanism, as was implied in last month's newsletter. Treatment Issues came to understand that doctors are sometimes able to get the test free for patients by requesting it along with an HlV-antibody test leven for patients who are known to be HlV-positive) at certain Health Department Laboratories. However, this is not a formal practice, and is apparently not widely available.
