We describe the anatomic and histologic presentation and prognosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) among people with AIDS (PWA) and determine their contribution to the NHL burden. We linked AIDS and cancer registries in selected areas of the United States and compared NHL sites and histologies in PWA and non-PWA, after adjusting for age, sex and ethnicity. Among 51,033 PWA, we found 2,156 cases of NHL (4.3%). Half of NHL cases occurring post-AIDS were not reported to AIDS registries. NHL ...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, brain lymphoma incidence has dramatically increased, presumably because of elevated risk of brain lymphoma among persons with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to estimate independent incidence and survival rates of brain lymphoma among persons with or without AIDS and to understand the epidemiologic features of this cancer.

METHODS: We linked AIDS and cancer registry reports at nine state and local health ...

BACKGROUND: Perinatal transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 contributes significantly to infant mortality. Exposure in the birth canal may account for some transmission. We examined the efficacy of a birth canal washing procedure in reducing perinatal transmission in Malawi.

METHODS: The infection status of infants of 3327 control women (conventional delivery procedures) was compared with that of 3637 infants of intervention-delivered women. The infants' HIV status ...

BACKGROUND: Large simple trials which aim to study therapeutic interventions and epidemiological associations of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, including perinatal transmission, in Africa may have substantial rates of loss to follow-up. A better understanding of the characteristics and the impact of women and children lost to follow-up is needed.

METHODS: We studied predictors and the impact of losses to follow-up of infants born in a large cohort of delivering women in ...

HIV-1 RNA levels measured during early chronic infection strongly predict subsequent clinical events. In the short term, HIV-1 is in a steady state, but the stability of viral levels over time is incompletely understood. We used reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to examine changes in serum HIV-1 RNA levels in 111 HIV-1-infected homosexual men during the period from 1982 to 1992 and their relation to clinical outcomes. HIV-1 RNA levels increased by a median of 0.08 ...

In HIV-infected subjects with haemophilia, CD4 counts seem to fall more slowly in those on high-purity factor VIII (FVIII) than on intermediate-purity product. We evaluated whether risks for AIDS or death were associated with either product among 411 HIV-infected individuals. The relative hazard of AIDS was slightly elevated for both current (1.34) [corrected] and cumulative (1.01 per month) use of high-purity products (neither significant). The corresponding hazards for death were 1.49 ...
