Uncertainty of AIDS incubation time and its effects on back-calculation estimates.

Abstract

Incubation time is the period from the onset of HIV infection to AIDS. The distribution of the incubation time is one of the main parameters of the back-calculation method for the estimation of incidence of HIV infection. Because of the long and variable incubation time, the assessment of its distribution is uncertain and this uncertainty spreads through… (More)
