HIV Incidence

Survey for Incidence Specimens

An essential element of the development and evaluation process for the calibration and validation of assays for recent infection is the availability of relevant biological specimen sets. The objective of this project was to catalogue studies that could potentially contribute such biological specimens or specimen sets to a repository of specimen panels that could be used to develop and evaluate assays for recent HIV infection. This report presents the findings of clinical trials and cohorts studies indentified.
