Correction

July 1996

In the March 1996 issue of the Moore News for Care Providers (p. 23), we inadvertently reported the following: The lowest detectable concentration with the Chiron 1st generation bDNA test is 104 copies/ml or 10,000 copies/ml; the threshold with the Roche RNA PCR is 102.2 or 200 copies/ml. The average patient shows 103-104 copies/ml during most of the course of the disease when the CD4 count is 200-800/mm3. It is >105 copies/ml or >100,000 copies/ml during the acute retroviral syndrome and during late stage disease.

This should have said: The lowest detectable concentration with the Chiron 1st generation bDNA test is 104 copies/ml or 10,000 copies/ml; the threshold with the Roche RNA PCR is 102.2 or 200 copies/ml. The average patient shows 103-104 copies/ml during most of the course of the disease when the CD4 count is 200-800/mm3. It is >105 copies/ml or >100,000 copies/ml during the acute retroviral syndrome and during late stage disease.

We regret the error.
