PMID:  7838478     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Testing for human immunodeficiency virus antibody (anti-HIV-1) in patients positive for hepatitis B surface antigen has never been performed in a dental school patient population. In this population there was a 2.8% positive reactivity for HIV-1 antibodies in subjects who were also positive for hepatitis B surface antigen. An enzyme-linked immunoassay with a repeat test and confirmation with a Western blot technique were used.
