BACKGROUND Variability in the profile of antigen-reactive bands in Western blot for serodiagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection may result in disagreement regarding interpretation of positive result, due to lack of consensus in the interpretive criteria laid down by various organisations. OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were (i) to find out the extent of disagreement over various criteria regarding interpretation of positivity in Western blot and (ii) to review the… CONTINUE READING
