Since July 1987 the German Red Cross Baden-Württemberg has practised confidential and anonymous self-exclusion of potential blood donours. The answers given by all donours of the Red Cross Blood Donour Service in Baden-Württemberg (n = 297,648) between 23. 2. 1988 and 31. 1. 1989 were analysed. Virological data of self-exclusion donours (n = 1910) and of a(More)
In the HIV study of the German Red Cross blood banks the overall rate has remained constantly low, with less than two Western blot positive donors in 100,000 donors since 1987. However, the rate of HIV positivity tends to increase in male first time and in male repeat blood donors. Despite this fact, the overall rate stays constant since the number of young(More)
From the multicenter study of the Red Cross Blood Banks in the FRG HIV-antibody prevalences and incidences are documented since July 1985. Constantly low prevalences and incidences since 1987 of less than 2 Western blot (Wb)-positive donors and less than 1 Wb-positive donor per 100,000 donors respectively confirm our estimate of the rest risk of an(More)
Repeatedly reactive results (also with reproducibility from donation to donation) are found in normal blood donor screening. They are obviously not HIV-1- (and/or HIV-2) specific. In some cases it cannot be clarified if we have to face a seroconversion. The cause of some antibodies (e.g. isolated p17 and/or p24 and/or p55) is not yet known. Therefore we(More)
