Transcript 8 MONTROSE VOICE/JUNE 13. 1986 The Medicine Chest A weekly health information column sponsored by The Montrose Clinic. So-Called 'AIDS Test' is Only a Test for Exposure A weekly health information column sponsored by The Montrose Clinic. Please send your health questions, anonymously, to: The Medicine Chest c/o The Montrose Voice 408 Avondale Houston, TX 77006 How long after exposure to AIDS would it take for the test to be positive? It is important to remember that the "AIDS test" is not really a test for AIDS. All the HTLV-III/LAV test does is determine whether or not you have antibodies to AIDS; i.e., whether or not you have been exposed to the virus. Exposure to the AIDS virus does not mean that you will get AIDS. It usually takes 2-8 weeks for the antibodies to develop after exposure, although in some cases it has taken up to 6 months. Because the test sometimes shows false negatives, it is suggested that those who test negatively (do not have antibodies) repeat the test in six months. AIDS Foundation Seeks Volunteers "Houston's AIDS Foundation always needs new volunteers," says Joe Lane, board member responsible for the group's volunteer program. I am married, but I have had several gay experiences (my wife doesn't know). My wife wants to have a baby, and I am worried about having a child with AIDS. What should I do? As we have said before, the AIDS antibody test cannot tell you if you have AIDS or if you are going to develop AIDS. But it does tell you if you are a carrier. Perhaps it would be appropriate for you to take the test to see if you have been exposed. If you have antibodies, then your wife is at risk of having been infected with the virus. This is the time to sit down and have an honest discussion with her about her risks and the risks to your future children. Perhaps she should take the antibody test since she is in a high risk group. If she tests positivie, it does not mean that she has AIDS or will develop AIDS. But she is at higher risk of developing AIDS than the average woman. This means that your future children are in a high risk group as well. At this time, medical experts SportsVoice "Besides the ongoing need for 'Buddies,' we need 'Helpers' to offer transportation and domestic assistance, plus volunteers to serve in the areas of fund raising, public relations, education and to assist in the foundation's office," says Lane. Anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer of the AIDS Foundation Houston can call 524- AIDS to request an application. Stein & Toklas DETECTIVES Join Gertrude Stein and Alice B.

This is not an easy issue, but it is one that must be confronted before you make decisions about children. You may want to contact the Montrose Counseling Center for support. AIDS Foundation Holding an Open House The AIDS Foundation, Houston, is inviting the community to an open house and reception Monday, June 16. The open house will be held 7:00- 9:00 p.m. at the group's offices at 3400 Montrose, suite 700. The open house will allow the foundation's supporters and contributors to see the new office and to meet the new board of directors. Curtis Dickson, the foundation's new executive director, will also be present to meet the public and to discuss the future direction of the organization. "The foundation has had an opportunity to express its gratitude to its volunteers through Volunteer Appreciation Night. It is hoped that this open house will be an opportunity to say 'thank you' to those persons who are not volunteers, but who are still supporters ofthe foundation," stated a press release from board member Patrick di Battista. "The evening will be an opportunity to socialize as well as to gather valuble information. The community built this foundation. They should come out and see something that they can be proud of," he said. Alyson Publications, Dept. P-5, 40 Plympton St., Boston.
