To the Editor: There have been no confirmed occupation-related cases of AIDS in health care workers in the United States. We have been following two nurses who participated in mouth-to-mouth resuscitation of a patient with the AIDS-related complex, who was positive for human T-cell lymphotropic virus Type- III/lymphadenopathy-associated virus (HTLV-III/LAV), and we here report their seronegativity nine months after exposure.
