Fourth-generation HIV assays, capable of identifying individuals with HIV infection earlier than prior generation assays, are now available. Studies have shown that these assays can reduce the "window (or seroconversion) period” and therefore earlier treatment and improved outcome. Educational Review Systems (ERS) and Medavera have developed this site as a destination for relevant information which will contain both live and enduring components.
