I don't know where else to put this.I have a friend that I feel was misdiagnosed for HIV.He was in the military for 14 years,which means he was seriously over-vaccinated.In 2007,he got very ill in US then came back to Germany and went to a hospital...they couldn't figure out his problem and sent him home.2wks later he went back...they said he had HepB(not possible do to vaccinations/abs. in your system so test will be pos.),ulcerative colitis.HIV(they said maybe that's the problem and ran 3 tests without his permission-WB was indeterminate other 2 pos)...they sent him on his way without treatment or counseling and never addressed the UC(an auto-immune disease ).So...he felt better,then in 2009 he got sick again and went to a university hospital where he was put on Atripla.(Question:If he actually had HepB,what the heck was this clown thinking? Because an ingred. in this med can exacerbate HepB to the point of liver failure-it is a contraindication)She told him he had HIV for 10 years.She took 4 Hep tests for B...2-pos,2-neg.She did the usual labs to check for infection,which can indicate viral/bacterial infection...I got him off the med(which can kill you),put him on a high-fiber diet and colloidal silver...2 1/2mths after not taking med,his doc calls in a panic and said that there was no med in his system and his VL was down by 300.She never called before or gave him info when he requested it.Then she met me...I also had him take another HIV test/s.2 of 4 were p24 antigen tests(1-pos,1-neg...before colloidal silver).....MY QUESTION:what are the differences/similarities in these 2 tests(antiHIV1,0.2+p24-Ag Abbott,4.Generatio and HIV-p24-antigen Murex HIV antigenmab)....In all my research,which indicates he does not have it,I only can find that the Murex test is more sensitive(neg on that one) and I think the Abbott is a 4th gen. thing.I need this last piece of the puzzle to go after these "doctors" because drs. don't usually like to admit that they are wrong.There is so much more to say,but no room....I will say the I am OUTRAGED at the treatment of human beings because some "doctor's" stock in Big Pharma.And I now plan on using what I have learned to help others...I am intelligent and have worked in the medical field,but am not a Dr.

Can someone out there help me?
