To examine sex-specific risk factors for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 seroconversion among intravenous drug users, the authors conducted a nested case-control study in Baltimore, Maryland, from 1988 to 1992 comparing 146 seroconverters and 539 HIV seronegative controls.
Controls were matched on sex, race, date of study entry, and duration of follow-up.
Risk factor data were obtained from interviews conducted at the first seroconversion visit for the case and the closest visit for the corresponding seronegative control.
Since test results were not available until several weeks after interview, both interviewers and participants were unaware of seroconversion status at the time of interview.
