  1. Testing of saliva and serum for HIV in high-risk populations.

    Article - En anglais

    Paired samples of saliva and serum from 286 high-risk subjects were tested for HIV using two commercial enzyme immunoassays following the same WHO testing strategy supplemented with a Western blot technique.

    Agreement between HIV testing in both sample types was 98.9% (95% confidence interval : 97.7-100).

    The sensitivity of an EIA (Well-cozyme GACELISA) alone for saliva was 100% (133/133) and the specificity 98.7% (151/153).

    These results support previous data showing that in some situations saliva might be an effective alternative to serum for HIV testing.
