  1. Fulltext. Cancer incidence among an HIV-infected cohort.

    Article - En anglais


    Malignancies, particularly Kaposi's sarcoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), are associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

    Cancer incidence among 1,073 asymptomatic HIV-infected individuals from the Pulmonary Complications of HIV Infection Study cohort, persons from six states followed from 1988 to 1994, was examined.

    Total cancer incidence was 3.99/100 person-years ; for Kaposi's sarcoma, incidence was 2.64 cases/100 person-years, and for NHL, it was 1.18 cases/100 person-years.

    Total cancer (n=156 cases) was higher among nonblacks than among blacks (rate ratio=2.8,95% confidence interval 1.3-6.1), with similar results for Kaposi's sarcoma and NHL.

    The rate of lung cancer (n=5) among white, homosexual/bisexual males was 0.18 per 100 person-years, suggesting a high risk of lung cancer.
