Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV after being stabbed with a steel wire that had previously cut another person. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk (there is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. However, there is a theoretical possibility of transmission under certain extenuating circumstances).
The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation. The only case in which there would be a theoretical chance of transmission is if a large amount of blood was on the wire and gained immediate access to your bloodstream through a large puncture wound.
Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. Refer to a healthcare professional for more personalized answers.
