HIV strains
Jul 8, 1999

I have been reading on this site about different strains of HIV. Can you explain the relevance of these strains to people in the U.S.? Should a gay man in the Eastern part of the U.S. be concerned about these different strains? Does the elisa pick these up? Are they very rare? I am confused. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Extremely rare in the US. ELISA will pick almost all HIV strains that would be circulating in the US. MH
