  1. Fulltext. HIV-1 seroprevalence and risk behaviors in an urban African-American Community cohort.

    Article - En anglais



    Previous attempts at obtaining population estimates of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) seroprevalence have been beset by problems of cooperation bias.

    As part of the fourth round of study with an urban African-American community cohort, the following investigation was aimed at assessing HIV-1 prevalence and the relative importance of sex and drug injection as risk factors in infection.


    Personal interviews were conducted in the home with 364 respondents, followed by voluntary blood sample collection from 287 of these individuals.
