A method for reconstructing the HIV infection curve from data on both HIV and AIDS diagnoses is enhanced by using age as a covariate and by using the diagnosis data to estimate parameters that were previously assumed known. Maximum likelihood estimation is used for parameters of the induction distribution. Each of the set of parameters that specify the baseline rate of infection over time and the set of parameters giving the relative susceptibility over age are estimated by maximizing the...[Show more]
