  1. HIV-1, HIV-2, HTLV-I/II and STD among female prostitutes in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    Article - En anglais

    To determine the prevalence of HIV-1 and HTLV-I/II among female prostitutes from different areas of the city of Buenos Aires, we studied serum samples from 237 individuals (mean age : 25 ; range 17 to 39).

    Prostitutes were recruited from 16 different Buenos Aires locations with different economical status.

    Information on sexual behavior, health and socioeconomic conditions was collected through a questionnaire.

    HIV-1 and HTLV-I/II antibodies (ab) were tested by ELISA (Abbott) and Particle agglutination (Fujirebio, Tokyo) respectively.

    Positive results were confirmed by immunofluorescence assay.

    Samples that were positive for HIV-1 antibodies were also tested for p24 antigen (Abbott).

    VDRL for syphilis was performed in all samples.

    Fifteen (6.3%) out of the 237 individuals were positive for HIV-1 antibodies.

    Moreover, 2 (0.8%) HIV-1 seropositive prostitutes were also positive for HTLV-I/II antibodies and for HIV p24-Ag.

    Eventhough PCR for HTLV-I/II was not performed, titration by IFA in these two samples suggests HTLV-I.

    Our serologic results indicate a relatively high HIV-I infection among prostitutes working in Buenos Aires.

    As we previously mentioned for other risk groups, we found an association between HTLV-I/II and HIV-1 infection in this particular group. (...)
