LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A porn actor has tested positive for HIV at a California clinic, resulting in testing and quarantine for all partners who may have been exposed.  

The Los Angeles Times reports that the identity and gender of the actor have not been released, but the person was treated by the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, a San Fernando Valley clinic that caters to actors in the multibillion-dollar adult entertainment industry.  

AIM spokeswoman Jennifer Miller says the clinic is working to notify individuals who may have been affected.  

Last year, a woman tested positive for HIV immediately after making an adult film, and in 2004, an HIV outbreak affecting several actors briefly shut down productions at several California studios.
