Selective tropism of lymphadenopathy associated virus (LAV) for helper-inducer T lymphocytes.

Detection of human anti-HTLV-III antibodies by indirect immunofluorescence using fixed cells.
 Sandstrom EG et al.
  “All but one of the 18 AIDS patients, a man with Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) was found to be positive by IFA. He was also negative by ELISA and Western blot. A heterosexual man with KS [not considered AIDS, perhaps because only gay men are expected to get KS] also scored negative in all three tests”
