''Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type III (HTLV-III) can be grown on the leukemic cell line H9 and prepared for HTLV-III antibody testing by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). 2 kits licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration are now available for screening of blood donors and high-risk groups. We have tested HLA antisera in the Abbott ELISA (batches 74089 HR and 75207 HR). 152 HLA-A, B, C antisera (commercially available or obtained via exchange programs) were clearly negative. However, of 310 HLA-DR antisera 10 gave positive HTLV-III antibody results. The HTLV-III antibody ELISA from Electro-Nucleonics Inc (fistributed by Viramed, Munich), master lot 2362, HTLV-III plate lot 4301018, also gave positive results with all of the above HLA-DR4 antisera except for 9w594. These data suggest that DR4 is present on the H9 cell and also as a contaminant on the HTLV-III antigen coated beads used for ELISA test. The fact that no other DR specificity was detected besides DR4 may indicate DR4 homozygosity or heterozygosity for DR4 and an unknown 2nd DR antigen or loss of the 2nd DR antigen on the infected leukemic H9 cell line. Cross-absorption studies with DR4-positive B-cell suspensions revomed the DR4 antibodies from Biotest 512731 and Frsenius 7297 (loss of reactivity against DR4-positive B cells in the 2-color-fluorescence technique); a subsequent HTLV-III test on the absorbed sera became clearly negative. A direct absorption of DR4 antisera on the antigen-coated test beads for further tests of DR4 reactivity was impossible because of the necessary 1:440 predilution of the sera in the standard ELISA procedure. Since an antigenic relation between HLA-DR4 and HTLV-III or the probability that all 9 donors of the different DR4 antisera were HTLV-III infected is unlikely, the recognition of DR4 antibodies in the sera of homosexuals (immunized by sperm and white blood cells), hemophiliacs, and patients on hemodialysis is important in the interpretation of positive HTLV-III antibody ELISA results.'' http://www.popline.org/node/419819#sthash.oZ3ebl17.dpuf
In South Africa they have a rate of around 18% of pre-eclampsia, which also features HLA-DR4.
Pre-eclampsia is associated with HLA-DR4 sharing between mother and fetus http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2371715?dopt=Abstract
Association between susceptibility to pre-eclampsia within families and HLA DR4. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2572795
And all Africans with autoimmune diseases like arthritis and psoriasis will also appear 'HIV' positive because of their HLA-DR4 genes.
"There was a significant association of HLA-DR4 with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The frequency of DR4 in RA was 44% in comparison with 10% in controls'

All of those studies were in the late 80's but it's clear that ‘HIV’ antibody tests cross react with activated HLA-DR genes in pre-eclampsia, cancers and all autoimmune diseases and should be taken off the market immediately despite long standing beliefs that the HIV antibody is a diagnostic test for a virus.
"During preliminary experiments to establish the proportion of virus-coded p24 protein to virus membrane-associated HLA-DR in gradient-enriched HIV-1 preparations, we became aware of a large variability between experiments. In order to determine whether HLA-DR-containing cellular material was contaminating the virus preparations, we carried out enrichment by gradient centrifugation of clarified supernatants from noninfected cells and tested this material for HLA-DR content. We found that, independently of the cell type used, gradient enrichment resulted in the isolation of large quantities of HLA-DR-containing material which banded at a density overlapping that of infectious HIV."

So called HIV tests have always been about Lymphoma and tumour cell detection.
This is Gallo's study in February of 1984 about finding p24 in cancer patients. In their own words they were about to commercialise the p24 antigen test as a measure of how big a tumour was. But any detection of retroviruses in tumours is irrelevant as they are full of retroviruses anyway as was found out later in research from this century.
"Circulating immune complexes from two patients with human T-cell leukaemia/ lymphoma virus (HTLV)-related lymphoma were shown to contain the major internal antigen of the virus, p24.
The amount of complex-bound p24 in sequential serum samples correlated roughly with tumour cell mass.
Small amounts of complex-bound p24 were detected in samples before a relapse became clinically manifest.
Measurement of complex-bound p24 in patients with HTLV-associated lymphomas and leukaemias might thus be helpful in management of malignancies and offer the possibility of detecting imminent relapse and preventing it by intensification of treatment."

So within 2 months you have to ask how did a p24 antigen to detect tumour size suddenly become a deadly sex virus in gays and this was all claimed as the cause of AIDS at a press conference without any reference to other researchers.
When those gays involved had cancers from popper use and other party drugs anyway.
"The amount of complex-bound p24 in sequential serum samples correlated roughly with tumour cell mass." This above means the size of a tumour can affect the HIV test measure levels...
"Small amounts of complex-bound p24 were detected in samples before a relapse became clinically manifest." means they found p24 was a measure of a tumour coming back before it was found
"Measurement of complex-bound p24 in patients with HTLV-associated lymphomas and leukaemias might thus be helpful in management of malignancies..." means they were about to commercialise the p24 test as a measure for detecting tumours before they appeared.
Not a sexually transmitted deadly immune damaging virus as claimed two months later at a press conference.
My opinion on the subject.
