Combination therapy with protease inhibitors and nucleoside analogues dramatically suppresses plasma HIV-1 RNA and delays progression to AIDS, but the impact on HIV-associated malignancy remains to be established. We therefore examined incidence trends of Kaposi's sarcoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in patients with advanced HIV infection in nine AIDS Clinical Trial Group studies of antiviral therapies for HIV and cytomegalovirus infections. Among a total of 6587 patients enrolled between November 1987 and February 1997, there were 280 cases of Kaposi's sarcoma and 68 cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Incidence rates per 100 person-years of both malignancies declined in concert with decreases in mortality, but the decreases in Kaposi's sarcoma were more profound and consistent than the decreases in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. These data suggest that current therapies have ameliorated the incidence of Kaposi's sarcoma, but may not have had an equal effect on non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
