THE INCIDENCE OF HIV INFECTIONS IN ARGES POPULATION IN 2012 - 2013

Journal Title: Current Trends in Natural Sciences - Year 2015, Vol 4, Issue 8

Abstract

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from Retroviridae family was isolated in early 80´s but his presence in Africa is much older than we previously thought, before the pandemic spread because of the social changes of 70´s (Cernescu, 1998). The incidence of HIV infections is a constant concern for public health specialists, with inferences for whole population. In this paper we presented the incidence of HIV infections in 2012/2013 period in Arges County, Romania. Studies were made in Laboratories of Public Health Department Arges. Immunoenzymatic methods were used for anti-HIV antibodies detection (Genscreen ULTRA HIV Ag-Ab kit from BIO RAD). The results of the immunoenzymatic tests were presented in order to age and gender of the tested people. New cases of HIV infection were 1.73% in 2012 and 1.10% in 2013 from all investigated samples. The positive samples were frequent in male population, and for 25 -34 years and 35-44 years age groups. Prophylaxis is the best weapon in fight against HIV/AIDS. But the properly way to stop the spread of HIV infections may be the development of vaccine or drugs to stop progression to AIDS (Al-Jabri, 2007).
