Twenty-Five Years of HIV Blood Testing Helped to Positively Transform Global Health Crisis
Date:3/2/2010

="disc">
  • Since 1985, Abbott has launched more than 20 HIV assays on six testing platforms to meet the unique patient needs worldwide.
  • More than two billion blood donations and individual patients have been screened using Abbott assays since 1985.
  • Abbott has donated more than 100 million rapid HIV tests free of charge to qualifying programs in 69 countries.
  • The Abbott Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) Donation is designed to provide Determine® HIV 1/2 tests free of charge to sound, sustainable programs aimed at preventing mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) in eligible countries.
  • Abbott recently submitted the ARCHITECT Ag/Ab HIV Combo Assay to the FDA for expedited review. The ARCHITECT Ag/Ab HIV Combo Assay is not intended for use in screening blood, plasma or tissue donors.  This assay is currently an investigational device in the United States, and a similar combination assay is available internationally.
  • Abbott scientists have developed two leading drug therapies, called protease inhibitors, for the treatment of HIV.
