HIV-Negative Mice Test HIV Positive

From the study:

So if they’re not infected with a virus, why is the test positive? Because they’re producing proteins that react with the non-specific test.

The authors go on to state that this may be so because general low-immunity (like that in lab mice) causes protein production of this type.

We use the test the same way on people – on those who are already sick, poor, deeply fatigued, drug-abusing, starving, without clean water, etc.
