Acceptability/Feasibility of HIV Testing by ELISA or Rapid Test to Adult Patients in Paris, France

2015-10-14 11:38:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

CDC recommends universal HIV testing in all adults, at least once during life, to reduce the pool of infected patients unaware of their status. Routine universal HIV testing can use "classical" ELISA tests from serum, or rapid tests, ideally from finger-stick whole blood (FSB), which have shown close predictive values from classical tests. The investigators will compare the acceptability and feasibility of the two methods.

Description

The multi-center prospective randomized study will compare the acceptability and feasibility of routine universal HIV testing to adult patients consulting their general practitioner in Paris, France, using either the " classical " ELISA tests from serum or rapid tests from FSB (Insti®).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Assessments aimed at determining agreement in diagnostic test results among laboratories. Identical survey samples are distributed to participating laboratories, with results stratified according to testing methodologies.

Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)

Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.

Testing in which the source of the specimen or the person being tested is not individually identified.
