The study aims were (i) to describe secular trends in the utilization of antiretrovirals, antivirals, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) prophylaxis, and antifungal prophylaxis and (ii) to determine whether factors such as clinical status, health services utilization, insurance status, income, education and race were associated with access to therapy.
Data on utilization of therapy, health services utilization, income and insurance status were collected semiannually from October 1990 through March 1992 from 1415 homosexual/bisexual HIV-1 seropositive men in the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS).
Prevalence of therapy use according to level of immunosuppression was determined at each study visit.
Clinical AIDS was defined using the 1987 CDC definition.
