|Genetic Evaluation of Suspected Cases of Transient HIV-1 Infection of Infants.|| ||Frenkel LM et al.
| ||“A reanalysis is presented of 43 cases of apparent transient viremina [one or more positive culture or PCR assays for HIV-1 and the subsequent inability to detect HIV-1 in the speciments on multiple occasions or seroreversion, or both]. 41 cases occurred among 1561 infants in five studies of mother-to-infant HIV-1 transmission...Our negative studies of 43 cases of suspected transient infection indicate that the phenomenon...remains to be proven and that most cases suggestive of transient HIV-1 infection are cases of mislabeling of specimens or their contamination in the laboratory”|
