HIV-infections can be transferred by blood and blood products, semen or organ transplants. For this reason, the WHO recommended a screening of all donors of blood, semen, tissues and organs. Those who belong to high-risk groups should be excluded from donations. If this recommendation should be also applied to cialit preserved auditory aussicles, this would probably mean the end of allogeneic transplantations of middle-ear surgery which are being performed daily. Therefore, we carried out experimental examinations with HIV-infected auditory aussicles in cialit. According to our results, it can be assumed that a virus-destruction takes place via a cialit-treatment. The same applies to solvent-dried fascia as to auditory aussicles which have been preserved in the same way. Consequently, there is no objection to further application of these allogeneic transplants in respect to HIV-infections.
