  1. Fulltext. Sentinel surveillance for HIV-2 infection in high-risk US populations.

    Article - En anglais



    We conducted sentinel surveillance in persons practicing behaviors known to transmit retroviruses to determine the US presence and extent of human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (HIV-2).


    Sentinel surveillance for HIV-2 was conducted by testing 31 533 anonymous blood specimens from patients at sexually transmitted disease clinics, injecting drug users at treatment centers, and clients at HIV counseling and testing sites in 14 US cities where West African immigrants often settle.
