  1. A seroepidemiologic survey of immunity against poliomyelitis in a group of HIV positive and HIV negative drug addicts.

    Article - En anglais

    In a seroepidemiological study performed to investigate immunity against poliomyelitis in a population of drug addicts in a rehabilitative residential centre we demonstrated a widespread lack of poliovirus neutralizing antibodies.

    This was more evident in the HIV positive subjects, 27% of whom were seronegative for poliovirus type 1,27% for type 2 and 34% for type 3, with 11% seronegative for all three types.

    These results indicate a gap in immunity to poliomyelitis in the examined population.
