  1. Impact of HIV infection on non-AIDS mortality among Italian injecting drug users.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives

    To estimate the excess mortality of injecting drug users (IDU) stratified by HIV serostatus compared with the general population in Italy.

    To compare total and cause-specific mortality in HIV-positive versus HIV-negative IDU, in order to identify possible HIV-related non-AIDS causes of death in this population.

    Methods

    All IDU attending two drug-treatment centres in Rome who underwent HIV testing between 1985 and 1991 were enrolled into a prospective study.

    The end-point of the study was death from any cause by 31 December 1991.

    Mortality rates were compared using age-adjusted standardized mortality ratios and person-time techniques.

    Results

    Of the 2431 IDU, 1661 (68.3%) were HIV-seronegative and 82 seroconverted.
