It appears to me that the standard test ELISA given for herpes type 1 and 2
give many false or misleading results, false negatives or false positives, equivocal?? If so many problems exist with this test why are they still used. I understand the western blot test are far more accurate and give you
a positive or negative result. It seems it is very difficult to obtain this test and labs are confused when asked for this test. The depression caused by this disease can be quite overwhelming and destroy marriages and families.
I also find most Dr. quite insensitive or annoyed when results are questioned.
Was the test given before ELISA also believed infallible until no longer trusted
I would appreciate any feed back.
