HIV Lives

Summer 1999

Researchers reported in January that HIV can survive for four weeks or longer in syringes that have been used to inject drugs. Whether or not viable HIV can be recovered depends on how much blood had been left in the syringe and how much virus the blood contains. ...The findings emphasize the benefits and importance of needle exchange programs that can help remove potentially infectious syringes from circulation.
