Homosexual/bisexual men from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, New York, New York, and San Francisco, California, were entered into trials of the efficacy of hepatitis B vaccine shortly before the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic was recognized (1978-1980).
The authors analyzed data, including serial blood samples tested for antibody to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) as well as demographic and behavioral information, to characterize the spread of HIV-1 infection within the cohorts.
By the end of 1982, the cumulative incidence of HIV-1 infection was 7.5% in Amsterdam, 26.8% in New York City, and 42.6% in San Francisco.
