Testing for Primary HIV Infection in Seronegative Patients: The purpose of the program is to determine the feasibility, effectiveness, and costs of screening for acute infection among seronegative individuals tested for HIV. The research objectives of the program are as follows: 1. To compare different tests and testing algorithms that could be used to detect acute infection (nucleic acid testing, p24 antigen testing, third-generation EIA, OraQuick, alterations in current diagnostic algorithm) where possible with regard to feasibility, sensitivity, specificity, predictive value, and cost. 2. To determine optimal settings/venues and/or individuals to be screened with a test sensitive for PHI. 3. To collect a panel of longitudinal specimens from a cohort of recently infected individuals. 4. To obtain preliminary information on alternative pooling strategies for nucleic acid testing to optimize cost and predictive value of test results. The estimated funding date is September 1, 2004.
