Factors associated with survival in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with very low CD4 counts.
The authors examined the survival experience of 289 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected men to identify factors independently associated with survival in patients with very low CD4 counts (<=100/mm3).
All subjects were HIV-infected men cared for at the San Francisco Veterans' Affairs Medical Center between January 1988 and November 1991.
Survival was measured from the date on which a patient was first known to have a CD4 count <=100/mm3 until death or censoring.
Factors potentially associated with survival were examined initially using the product limit (Kaplan-Meier) method; a multivariate model of survival was constructed using a proportional hazards (Cox) regression.
