If Wikipedia isn't lying, no PCR against reverse transcriptase was made. Which, honestly, I find very surprising. Having the One Big Sensation at hand, one would certainly use the most reliable test available rather than a simple antibody test to prove that it's genuine. Unless of course, if one already knows it's a hoax.

The negative antibody test, is relatively meaningless, as it really only says there are no antibodies. That could be for a similar reason as stated for the case of the the baby (immune tolerance) or for many other reasons. Including, of course, recovering from HIV infection -- but that this is the least probable cause.
