  1. Non-ulcerative sexually transmitted diseases as risk factors for HIV-1 transmission in women : results from a cohort study.

    Article - En anglais


    The heterosexual spread of HIV-1 is occurring at different rates in different parts of the world.

    The transmission probability of HIV-1 per sexual contact is low, but may be greatly enhanced by several cofactors.

    Sexually transmitted diseases (STD), especially genital ulcers, may be such factors.

    So far, epidemiological evidence that other STD facilitate HIV-1 transmission is weak.

    The objective of this study was to determine whether treatable STD enhanced sexual transmission of HIV-1 in a cohort of female prostitutes in Kinshasa, Zaire.
