Incidence of AIDS in HIV-1 infected thalassaemia patients.
To estimate the cumulative incidence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in thalassaemia major patients (TMP) human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) infected through transfusion, 79 seropositive TMP were studied.
At inclusion, mean age was 12.4+-6.6 years; 40 were men: 21 were splenectomized.
Centers for Disease Control, 1986 (CDC) stages and prescription of zidovudine were noted at least once a year.
Cumulative incidence of AIDS and standard error were calculated using non parametric life table method.
