1802 serum samples from high risk group of persons were tested for sero-positivity for HIV-1 and HIV-2 by using immunocomb bioassay procedure. Out of 16 sero-positive serum samples, 5 (31.25%) was positive for HIV-2 only. It is, therefore, suggested that all kits employed for initial serotesting must include both HIV-1 and HIV-2.
