    Article - En anglais


    To quantify mortality without AIDS diagnosis (pre-AIDS death) among HIV-infected injecting drug users (IDU) and to compare it with that among homosexual men.


    Municipal Health Service in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.


    HIV-infected participants of a cohort of homosexual men (recruited since 1984) and a cohort of IDU (recruited since 198S) were followed up to investigate the occurrence of AIDS and pre-AIDS death up to 1 October 1992.

    Both seroprevalent and seroconverted participants were included.


    Product-limit estimates of cumulative AIDS incidence and cumulative pre-AIDS mortality were calculated for a competing risks model.
