Conclusions

The outcomes of cancer treatments are similar in people with HIV and people without HIV, as long as the treatment is the same, the HIV infection is diagnosed and treated, and there is careful attention to the antiretroviral and chemotherapy interactions, and the opportunistic infection prophylaxis is prescribed.

USA data revealed that people with HIV infection and cancer died much more frequently than people who didn’t have HIV and had the same cancers, because they didn’t get proper treatment. Treatment of NADMs requires collaboration between oncologists and the HIV physicians, to better address treatment and screening strategies.
