Total of 4567 sera samples obtained from high risk groups viz. blood donors, patients attending skin/VD clinics have been examined for HIV-antibodies. None of them showed seropositivity. Since in Bihar, interaction with foreigners is not common as it is in the metropolitan cities of India, this may be one of the chief reasons for not finding any HIV-seropositive case so far. 7% of blood donors showed VDRL positive reaction. Both competitive ELISA and particulate-agglutination tests on 375 sera samples gave identical negative result.
