Abstract

We used ELISA to estimate the prevalence of anti-sulfatide antibodies in HIV-infected individuals with distal sensory neuropathy (DSP) and compared the results with the prevalence in HIV-infected individuals without DSP and in individuals with neuropathy who are not infected with HIV. We found that 36% of HIV+/DSP+ individuals had immunoglobulin (Ig) G anti-sulfatide antibody titers greater than 1,500, whereas IgG anti-sulfatide antibodies were rarely found in HIV+/DSP- or HIV-/DSP+ patients.
