California was the first state in the United States to mandate the testing of all donated blood and blood products for evidence of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Regulations requiring HIV antibody screening were promulgated within days after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the HIV antibody test in 1985. HIV seroprevalence among California blood and plasma donors was recently reviewed and is reported here.
