Specificity of new peptide immunoassays versus other immunoassays and agglutination tests for detection of HIV antibody in African sera

, : Specificity of new peptide immunoassays versus other immunoassays and agglutination tests for detection of HIV antibody in African sera. European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases 10(8): 636-640

The specificity of three HIV EIAs using synthetic peptides was evaluated and compared with that of four commercial EIAs using recombinant proteins or whole virus lysates of HIV-1 or of HIV-1 and HIV-2, and of two tests based on agglutination of sensitized particles. A total of 734 West African sera were screened. The best results were obtained with tests using recombinant proteins. HIV tests using synthetic peptides able to distinguish between HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies showed comparable specificity, but some false negative results represent a major handicap of these peptide EIAs in screening for HIV antibodies.
