“Porn Star Tested Twice as ‘Reactive,’ But Eight Other Exams Showed Him HIV Negative”

from www.laweekly.com – The porn industry’s trade group, the Free Speech Coalition, today unveiled details of how its latest HIV scare came to be.

A performer initially had a positive indication, setting off a shut-down of production, and sparking a war of words between the FSC and L.A.’s pro-condom AIDS Healthcare Foundation. But he eventually came up negative.

According to an FSC statement, here is the timeline of what happened:

-On Aug. 20 the patient took a PCR/NAT test that came up “reactive” for HIV, indicating exposure to the virus.

-Immediate follow-up Western Blot and ELISA tests turned up negative, however.

-Then, on Aug. 29, he got another follow-up test, this one a “PCR/DNA,” test, at Talent Testing Services. Again, he got a scary “reactive” result.

-Immediate Western Blot and ELISA follow-up tests, however, came up negative.

-On Aug. 31 Talent Testing Services told the performer that an additional PCR/DNA test turned up negative.

-On Sept. 3, follow-up PCR/RNA, Western Blot and ELISA tests by Advanced Medical Testing Centers, a facility recommended by the industry’s health organization, turned up negative.

The FSC says this is all according to the porn star’s account: It has requested that he release these records, and he agreed, but it doesn’t have them yet.

The FSC:

When test results were returned by AMTC and after consultation with APHSS.org medical advisers, FSC/APHSS.org was satisfied that the moratorium on content production could be lifted this past Saturday.
