Correction

January 01, 1991

An item in a year-end picture page Sunday in The Sun said some doctors said the long incubation period for acquired immune deficiency syndrome casts doubt on the immediate usefulness of testing for infection. In fact, doctors say testing is valuable because it makes it possible to treat infected patients years before they develop the disease and because it alerts such patients to the fact that they can infect others.

The Sun regrets the error.
