To the Editor.— In the article on the
acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) among women in the United States,1 Drs Wortley and Fleming refer to preliminary findings
of a study to validate cases classified as heterosexual by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention human immunodeficiency virus (CDC HIV) surveillance
program. These data are of critical importance in determining trends in AIDS
incidence. However, the abstract2 referenced
in the article merely provides a 3-line description of the study objectives.
