Abstract

This study shows that HIV infected individuals had increased titres of antibodies against S typhi from the baseline. This indicates a need for evaluation of current cut-off values of diagnostic titres for this group. We also suggest that it is best to perform baseline titres against S t yphi for each patient at the time of diagnosis of HIV status, and to use this for future reference.
