BACKGROUND Prospective characterization of hepatitis C virus (HCV) transmission in both human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected and -uninfected men who have sex with men (MSM) over the entire HIV epidemic has not been comprehensively conducted. METHODS To determine the trends in and risk factors associated with incident HCV in MSM since 1984, 5310 HCV(More)
BACKGROUND Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals are at higher risk for chronic kidney disease than HIV-uninfected individuals. We investigated whether the inflammation present in treated HIV infection contributes to kidney dysfunction among HIV-infected men receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy. METHODS The glomerular(More)
OBJECTIVE Formulae used to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR) underestimate higher GFRs and have not been well-studied in HIV-infected (HIV(+)) people; we evaluated the relationships of HIV infection and known or potential risk factors for kidney disease with directly measured GFR and the presence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). DESIGN(More)
BACKGROUND Decreased kidney function and greater albuminuria are associated with increased incidence and extent of coronary artery calcium (CAC). We investigated whether the associations between kidney function and urine protein-to-creatinine ratio (UPCR) with CAC differ by HIV serostatus. METHODS Using data from the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study, a(More)
In a two-sample location-scalemodelwith censored data, the logrank test is asymptotically efficient when the error distribution is extreme minimum value. On the other hand, the Wilcoxon test is asymptotically efficient when the error distribution is logistic. We propose a pretest for choosing between logrank and Wilcoxon by determining if the error(More)
