ABSTRACT
This article reports on the move by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) to convene a panel to examine alternatives to the two-test HIV confirmatory algorithm that has been recommended and approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the country. It explains that these HIV testing algorithms can allow for rapid test for screening at the point of contact, immunoassays that are more sensitive earlier during seroconversion and HIV-1 RNA assays for diagnosis.
