ABSTRACT
The article discusses research on HIV transmission through blood transfusion. It references the study "HIV Transmission Through Transfusion: Missouri and Colorado," published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in a 2010 issue of "MMWR." The study found that a 40-year-old male who was positive for HIV donated blood which was given to an older man who underwent cardiac surgery and a patient with chronic renal failure.
