LOS ANGELES (AP) - No new cases of HIV have been found at the Los Angeles clinic where an adult film actor tested HIV-positive last month.

The Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation said Friday it has ruled out the illness in any partners of the infected actor after two rounds of testing.

News of the HIV-infected actor last month spread fresh fears of sexually transmitted disease through the California adult film industry. Several major pornographers shut down film production until the clinic could complete testing on all parties that may have been affected

The identity and gender of the HIV-positive actor have not been released.

County health officials say at least eight adult film performers have tested positive since a 2004 outbreak of HIV in the adult entertainment industry.
