Cumulative cancer incidence by age 60 is a potentially useful clinical measure. Main limitation is that we were not able to study secular trends in cancer screening, smoking, or viral co-infections. Study strengths were the large size and geographic and demographic diversity of cohorts.

With the exception of declines for KS and NHL as a result of ART, and an increase for liver cancer, cancer risk did not change significantly over time.

However, risk for KS, NHL, HL, malignant melanoma, and anal, lung and liver cancers varied significantly by sex, race, and/or HIV exposure risk.

Cohorts included (N): ALIVE (609), HIVRN (10,230), HOPS (4,192), JHHCC (4,043), KPNC (7,824), MACS (1,403), MONT (2,206), SAC (1,730), UAB (2,470), UCHCC (1,596), UW (2,842), CWRU (1,545), VAND (3,285), WIHS (2,300)
