Just got my results from Lakewood Bikur Cholim (Mayo Clinic). Tested in Flatbush.

The Mayo Clinic has confirmed that your antibody levels are not eligible for plasma donation.


This does not reflect whether or not you tested positive/negative for COVID-19.


My oxegyn sat hovered in the upper 80s for a week. Not sure what to think.

A) I didn't have it (find it hard to believe)
B) I didn't develop enough antibodies
C) I already lost my antibodies
D) Sample/Testing error
E) ??

Scary. How long before your antibody test did your symptoms subside?

E) You were tested positive with antibodies and they mistakenly sent you this email as they aren't sharing actual results.

They emailed me that I have antibodies, but they don't want to show me the results, so I submitted an information release form to Mayo Clinic for the lab report, lets see what happens.

In order to not share results they told him hes NOT eligible to donate?! Sounds farfetched to me.

No, I'm just saying there's a possibility that they mistakenly sent him the wrong email, and you can't know as they aren't sharing the actual results.

Never had an organ transplant, transfusion, or pregnancy in my life.

I also had negative antibodies and many in my immediate family had anti bodies 320+, so it can just be that my immune system just didn't build up any anti bodies. I had little symptoms.
