Recent trends in AIDS-related mortality in the United States are analyzed using data on 1255 patients attending one of nine clinics in various cities between 1994 and 1997. "Mortality among the patients declined from 29.4 per 100 person-years in 1995 to 8.8 per 100 person-years in the second quarter of 1997. There were reductions in mortality regardless of sex race age and risk factors for transmission of HIV." The authors attribute the decline in both morbidity and mortality from AIDS to the use of more intensive antiretroviral therapies. (EXCERPT)
