Anemia and survival in HIV infection

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Several clinical studies have suggested that anemia is an independent risk factor for dying in patients with HIV disease. We analyzed data from a large urban HIV clinical practice in Baltimore to assess the annual incidence of anemia, the risk of dying in patients who develop anemia, and the association between recombinant human erythropoietin use to treat anemia and subsequent survival. In 2348 patients observed between 1989 and 1996, 498 (21%) developed at least grade I anemia (hemoglobin
