  1. HIV-2 infection among prostitutes working in the Gambia : association with serological evidence of genital ulcer diseases and with generalized lymphadenopathy.

    Article - En anglais

    Three hundred and fifty-five prostitutes working in the Gambia were enrolled in a study of retroviral infections.

    Eight-seven (24.6%) were infected with HIV-2 only, two (0.6%) with HIV-1 only, four (1.1%) had sera showing double HIV-1/HIV-2 reactivity, and 37 (10.4%) were seropositive for HTLV-1.

    After allowing for socioeconomic and serological variables in a multivariate analysis, HIV-2 infection was associated with serological evidence of a previous episode of syphilis.
