  1. Risk of human immunodeficiency virus infection from unprotected receptive anal intercourse increases with decline in immunologic status of infected partners.

    Article - En anglais

    To determine whether human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 infection among unprotected receptive anal partners of HIV type 1-infected men varies by the immunologic status of the HIV type 1-infected index case, 187 sexual partners of 164 HIV type 1-infected index subjects were enrolled at a community health center in Boston, Massachusetts, from 1985-1990.

    All subjects were interviewed regarding their sexual practices and tested for HIV type 1. Fifty-seven of the 187 sexual partners were infected with HIV type 1. The strongest risk factor for HIV type 1 infection among these partners was unprotected receptive anal intercourse with a known HIV type 1-infected index subject (odds ratio (OR)=7.2, 95% confidence interval (CI) 3.1-16.3).
