The revised definition is contingent on the reactions of state health departments, epidemiologists and other health-watch organizations, but a spokesman for the national Centers for Disease Control said the proposal is common with new diseases. "We hope this expanded definition will be adopted for national reporting purposes by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists at their May meeting in Santa Fe, N.M.," said Dr. Tim Dondero, chief of the surveillance and evaluation branch of the AIDS program at the CDC. The CDC currently excludes people who have been diagnosed by physicians as having AIDS, but who have not been diagnosed with a laboratory biopsy test. "Studies have shown that between 10 and 15 percent of AIDS patients have been diagnosed through clinical rather than laboratory methods and they aren't included in our AIDS figures," Dondero said. "We've gotten a lot of input through clinical physicians who deal a lot with AIDS and also through public health specialists in heavy AIDS areas." Dondero said the revised definition of AIDS could increase the number of reported AIDS cases in the United States by 20 percent. "This doesn't mean there is suddenly going to be X-number more people suddenly having AIDS," he said. "It's just that there are more people out there with AIDS than we officially count because of our current definition of the disease." The new definition would add 6,500 cases of acquired immune deficiency syndrome to the 32,825 cases reported to the CDC as of last Monday, a spokesman said. The revised definition will include two more diseases known to be associated with the AIDS virus infection— the Dementia complex, a deteriorating infection of the brain, and the wasting syndrome, a chronic duration of fevers, diarrhea and appreciable weight loss in people with AIDS virus infection. The most common opportunistic infection attacking AIDS victims is Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, a parasitic infection of the lungs. Of the 32,825 AIDS cases, 21,203 of them have or did have that infection. MBS?
