Figure 1. From: Increased risk of histologically-defined cancer subtypes in HIV-infected individuals: clues for possible immunosuppression-related or infectious etiology.

Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) comparing risk of cancer in people with AIDS to the general population by calendar period. Points indicate SIRs and vertical lines indicate 95% confidence intervals. P-trend values are as follows: bronchioloalveolar adenocarcinoma (p-trend=0.02), sarcoma NOS (p-trend=0.0003), plasma cell tumors (p-trend=0.0001), neoplasms of histiocytes and accessory lymphoid cells (p-trend=0.05), leukemia NOS (p-trend=0.02) and adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (p-trend=0.01). Zero cases of adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma occurred in people with AIDS during 1980–1989.

Figure 2. From: Increased risk of histologically-defined cancer subtypes in HIV-infected individuals: clues for possible immunosuppression-related or infectious etiology.

Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) comparing risk of cancer in people with AIDS to the general population by time relative to AIDS onset. Points indicate SIRs and vertical lines indicate 95% confidence intervals. P-trend values are as follows: spindle cell sarcoma (p-trend=0.03), leiomyosarcoma (p-trend=0.006) and plasma cell tumors (p-trend=0.003). Zero cases of spindle cell sarcoma occurred in the period 60 months to 25 months before AIDS and the period 24 to 7 months before AIDS. The period 6 months before to 3 months after AIDS onset was excluded from the trend test, because increased medical surveillance at the time of AIDS diagnosis inflates cancer risk estimates during this time period.
