Survival and the use and costs of hospital services for London AIDS patients treated with AZT

The aim of this study was to evaluate the survival patterns and use and cost of hospital services of AIDS patients treated with AZT at St Mary's Hospital, London. A retrospective analysis of inpatient and outpatient case notes was performed, as was a survey of HIV-related care costs in 37 clinical departments. Of the 183 AIDS patients managed between 1 January 1987 and 30 September 1989, 132 were treated with AZT and 51 without AZT.
