Comments on an article by Kelly Collins et al on vitro models of mucosal HIV transmission published in the April 2000 issue of 'Nature Medicine' periodical. Absence of data which showed that controls were used to eliminate the possibility that inoculating virus has access to the tissue; Interpretation of the claim of Collins et al that transmission of the virus occurred in majority of examined tissue.
