  1. USE OF PCR FOR DIAGNOSING HIV-1 INFECTION IN PEDIATRIC PATIENTS

    SBC: Biotech Research Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    PREVALENCE STUDIES FOR HIV-1 INFECTION IN NEWBORNS ARE DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN BECAUSE THE COMMONLY USED ANTIBODY ASSAYS ARE NOT APPROPRIATE FOR TESTING BABIES. BABIES CARRYTHE MATERNAL ANTIBODY FOR UP TO 12 TO 18 MONTHS AFTER BIRTH,SO ALL BABIES BORN TO SEROPOSITIVE MOTHERS WILL ALSO TEST POSITIVE. YET 40 TO 50 PERCENT OF THESE BABIES ARE NOT ACTUALLY INFECTED. IN THIS RESEARCH, POLYMERASE CHAIN REAC ...
