Human immunodeficiency virus activity in rib allografts

Published in Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. 1998, vol. 56, no. 4, p. 474-6
Abstract The use of bone allografts involves the risk of transmitting infectious agents from the donor to the recipient as shown by historical surveys. A study was therefore undertaken to test the hypothesis that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) activity can still be present after the freezing and thawing of ribs taken from an acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patient at autopsy.
