  1. Improved survival from diagnosis of AIDS in adult cases in the United Kingdom and bias due to reporting delays.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To measure developments in survival patterns among United Kingdom adult AIDS cases.

    Design

    A follow-up survey of cases reported voluntarily to the national surveillance schemes was undertaken to obtain up-to-date information on vital status.

    Methods

    All reporting clinicians who had a current AIDS patient not known to have died whose AIDS-defining illness was diagnosed before the end of September 1990 were contacted.

    A total of 3984 cases were included in the analysis.

    Results

    An extra third of deaths other than those reported through routine channels were ascertained by follow-up.
