To characterize recent HIV seroconverters in a sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic population, and examine changing transmission patterns.
We conducted a case-control study nested within a retrospectively defined cohort of individuals attending Baltimore STD clinics between january 1988 and july 1990.
Seroconverters, who tested HIV-positive after having a negative test, were compared to both HIV-negative controls, who were also tested twice, and a second, prevalent HIV-positive control group.
Controls were matched 2: 1 by sex, clinic, and month of HIV test.
Forty-nine out of 6175 (0.79%) patients tested at least twice had documented HIV-1 seroconversion.
