The goal of the study was to determine survival time after diagnosis of acquired immunodeificiency syndrome (AIDS) and to identify predictors of survival.
We conducts a population-based prospective survival analysis of all Massachusetts-resident adult AIDS patients diagnosed from January 1, 1979, through December 31, 1988.
Median survival was 406 days, with a 5-year survival rate of 3%. Age older than 40 years (P=.001), a diagnosis other than Kaposi's sarcoma (P=.001), and a history of intravenous drug use (P<=.01), were associated with shorter survival after confounding was controlled.
