Abstract

Skin tests and lymphocyte proliferation assays (LPA) were performed with Mycobacterium avium sensitin on patients with AIDS. Among 139 subjects, 13% had positive skin test results and 32% had positive LPA results. The LPA may be a more sensitive indicator of prior M. avium infection in this population.
