|Abstract: ||We report the development and evaluation of a human immunodeficiency virus type 1 testing algorithm
consisting of three rapid antibody detection tests. Stored serum samples from Uganda were utilized with a final
algorithm sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 98.9% (95% confidence interval, 98.6% to 99.3%).|
