    Do you mean the one Penn State was doing research with? The one funded by the Dept of Defense?

    Good luck; they sure don't care if we have it, and doubt if a test will be available...more like biowar defenses.

    Hi Skeptik2,

    I don't know about the Penn State test, but I get the impression from what you said that my doctor would not be able to send my blood there for testing.

    last i checked, there was no test for PIV-5 available but you might want to email The Institute for Viral Pathogenesis for more info.
