Comparison of blood collected in acid-citrate-dextrose and EDTA for use in human immunodeficiency virus peripheral blood mononuclear cell cultures.


Journal Article

Paired blood samples collected in acid-citrate-dextrose and EDTA were compared for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infectivity on the day of collection or after 1 day of storage at room temperature. No significant differences between the anticoagulants were observed. Culture positivity was significantly associated with HIV RNA viral loads for both anticoagulants.
