Tests of vets potentially infected with HIV continues

By Ed O'Keefe

The Department of Veterans Affairs continues to test more than 1,800 military veterans potentially infected with HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.

The VA informed vets treated at the St. Louis VA Medical Center that they may have been infected with the diseases during dental procedures. The veterans received dental work from Feb. 1, 2009, through March 11 of this year.

VA had tested 1,144 veterans as of Wednesday and 809 had tested negative for HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C, according to a spokeswoman. Results are pending for the other veterans, she said.

The latest exposure scare comes after the VA exposed more than 10,000 military veterans to the diseases at hospitals in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.
