Abstract

The authors did a seroprevalence survey among patients requiring regular dialysis at the University of Virginia Medical Center. Three patients (4%) had positive results by enzyme immunoassay (EIA) at both laboratories and were evaluated further. Two of the three had negative results by Western blot testing. One patient had an indeterminate result due to an atypical blot pattern; three distinct bands were noted corresponding to proteins having molecular weights of approximately 50,000, 57,000, and 70,000. These bands did not correspond with the locations of bands from the positive control that was run concurrently.
