Per-contact risk of human immunodeficiency virus transmission between male sexual partners.
TLDR
As lower-risk practices become more common, they may play a larger role in propagating the epidemic and should also be addressed by interventions targeting high-risk homosexual and bisexual men.
Per-contact probability of HIV transmission in homosexual men in Sydney in the era of HAART
TLDR
Despite the fact that a high proportion of HIV-infected men are on antiretroviral treatment and have undetectable viral load, the per-contact probability of HIV transmission due to UAI is similar to estimates reported from developed country settings in the pre-HAART era.
HIV sexual transmission risk among serodiscordant couples: assessing the effects of combining prevention strategies
TLDR
Focusing on 1-year and longer term transmission probabilities gives couples a better understanding of risk than those illustrated by data for a single sexual act, though long-term transmission probabilities to the negative partner in serodiscordant couples can be high, though these can be substantially reduced with the strategic use of preventive methods, especially those that include ART.
Quantifying sexual exposure to HIV within an HIV-serodiscordant relationship: development of an algorithm
TLDR
Key determinants of HIV exposure risk can be incorporated into a mathematical model in order to quantify individual relative risks of HIV acquisition, and can facilitate comparisons within clinical trials of exposed uninfected individuals and facilitate interventions to reduce HIV transmission.
Modeling HIV transmission risk among Mozambicans prior to their initiating highly active antiretroviral therapy
TLDR
The model demonstrated HAART along with syphilis and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) treatment combined could reduce HIV-1 transmission by 87%; increasing condom use could reduceAIDS transmission by 67%.
HIV transmission risk through anal intercourse: systematic review, meta-analysis and implications for HIV prevention
TLDR
It was demonstrated that it would require unreasonably low numbers of AI HIV exposures per partnership to reconcile the summary per-act and per-partner estimates, suggesting considerable variability in AI infectiousness between and within partnerships over time.
The contribution of steady and casual partnerships to the incidence of HIV infection among homosexual men in Amsterdam
TLDR
Most new HIV infections among homosexual men in Amsterdam occur within steady relationships, and prevention measures should address risky behaviour, specifically with steady partners, and the promotion of HIV testing.
Infectiousness of HIV-infected homosexual men in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy.
TLDR
This result is surprising, given the reduction in community viral load that has been observed in some other homosexual populations following the introduction of HAART [8], and that such reductions in viral load are expected to reduce HIV infectiousness.
Sexual transmission of HIV-1.
“Any Condomless Anal Intercourse” is No Longer an Accurate Measure of HIV Sexual risk Behavior in Gay and Other Men Who have Sex with Men
TLDR
It is argued that summary measures such as “any CLAI” do not accurately measure HIV sexual risk behavior and using all forms of CLAI indiscriminately as a measure of HIV behavioral risk is not helpful in understanding the current drivers of HIV transmission in the community.

Time of exposure and risk of HIV infection in homosexual partners of men with AIDS.
TLDR
The data suggest that the potential for sexual transmission from an HIV-infected person may be greater close to or after the onset of disease.
Sexual practices and risk of infection by the human immunodeficiency virus. The San Francisco Men's Health Study.
TLDR
Only receptive anal/genital contact had a significantly elevated risk of HIV infection and Douching was the only ancillary sexual practice that contributed significantly to risk of infection.
Risk of human immunodeficiency virus transmission from heterosexual adults with transfusion-associated infections.
TLDR
Although most husbands and wives remained uninfected despite repeated sexual contact without protection, some acquired infection after only a few contacts, consistent with an as yet unexplained biologic variation in transmissibility or susceptibility.
Male-to-female transmission of human immunodeficiency virus.
TLDR
Neither condom use, total number of sexual partners since 1978, nor lifetime number of sexually transmitted diseases was associated with infection.
Heterogeneity in the probability of HIV transmission per sexual contact: the case of male-to-female transmission in penile-vaginal intercourse.
TLDR
This model represents variation in the infectivity beta of HIV among heterosexual couples by modelling beta as a random variable and fits the model by maximum-likelihood estimation with a beta distribution and a discrete distribution for beta.
Increased suppressor T cells in probable transmitters of human immunodeficiency virus infection.
TLDR
Comparing seven men who were probable transmitters of HIV and 11 men who had not transmitted HIV to their uninfected partners despite unprotected insertive anal intercourse, there were no differences in HIV isolation from peripheral blood mononuclear cells, circulating HIV antigen detection, or presence of neutralizing antibody to HIV.
Sexual transmission of human immunodeficiency virus.
TLDR
In the absence of a vaccine or therapy, the major hope for preventing transmission is the adoption of donor deferral, HIV-antibody screening, and heat treatment of factor concentrates.
[Transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus].
TLDR
The appearance of AIDS in disparate populations, connected only by probable routes of transmission, was among the initial pieces of evidence suggesting an infectious cause.
