SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. -- AIM Healthcare has released details on the "Patient Zero" performer who tested positive for HIV.

Described by AIM administrator Brooke Hunter as "a video performer," the female performer tested positive from a blood draw on June 4. The results were received June 6. The performer's last negative test was April 29. She had previously been described as being in "a small number of films," which would explain the 36-day gap between tests.

There are two first-generation industry partners for Patient Zero.

One of her industry partners has tested "Not Detected" by PCR/DNA test, most recently on June 8. He will retest on June 22, at the end of 14 days. His last negative test was May 13.

A second industry partner, in Las Vegas, tested "Not Detected" most recently on June 9. He worked with the infected woman on June 5. He will be retested on June 19, at the end of 14 days.

A second-generation exposure, the girlfriend of one of the industry partners, last tested negative on May 19 and will retest on June 19.

"We've talked to everybody," Hunter told XBIZ. "We've told them not to work. Patient Zero, the people she worked with, and the people they worked with. All of those people are being tested. Each performer will be followed up with two 14-day tests."

AIM cofounder Sharon Mitchell referred to rumors about the performer and the test results.

"We are finding that many clients, patients, and companies are tempted to discuss this delicate matter with the world for whatever personal or professional gain," Mitchell said in a statement. "Fact is, that we are still awaiting final confirmation on the Patient Zero, who was given a positive result on Saturday, June 6."
