Abstract:

The introduction of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in the US and Europe has led to changes in the incidence of cancers among HIV- infected persons, including dramatic decreases in Kaposi sarcoma (KS) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and increases in Hodgkin lymphoma (HD), liver and anogenital malignancies. We sought to evaluate whether increasing availability of ART is associated with changing cancer incidence in Uganda.
