Update on Patient Alpha
Source: FSC PR
by: Company Press Release

(CANOGA PARK, CA) -- In the interest of providing accurate information to industry and media, Free Speech Coalition (FSC) has issued this update to explain the process of testing that took place for the adult performer identified as ''Patient Alpha.''

In cooperation with the performer, FSC has reconstructed the process of testing for Patient Alpha, which resulted in what is now believed to be at least one false positive result and touched off a week-long industry moratorium on content production.

According to reports from the performer, the dates and sequence of tests are as follows:

Initial tests, administered by [an unnamed testing facility] -

August 20 - PCR/Nat; results come back "reactive" (indication of HIV exposure) Followed up with Western Blot and Elisa tests; both results negative for these tests

Secondary tests, administered by Talent Testing Services (TTS) -

August 29 PCR/DNA test is reported to patient as "reactive" Followed up with Western Blot and Elisa tests that produced negative results August 31 Patient is contacted by TTS and told that results of an additional PCR/DNA test on original blood sample is negative

Test administered by Advanced Medical Testing Centers (an APHSS.org recommended testing facility)

Sept 3 - PCR/RNA, Western blot and Elisa tests, all return negative results; patient is informed FSC would like to add that none of the results for tests taken outside of APHSS.org program can be confirmed at this time, except as reported by he patient. Neither [an unnamed testing facility] or Talent Testing Services are participants in APHSS.org.

Patient Alpha has signed a medical information release waiver and APHSS.org medical advisers have requested copies of the raw data of the test results from Talent Testing Services. There has been no response at this time.

PCR/RNA is the only HIV test approved by the FDA for diagnosis of "primary or acute infection," but also must be confirmed with supplementary tests. This is a more recently developed test than the PCR/DNA, which has become industry standard for monthly testing of performers.

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 on this past Saturday.
