Follow-up The median follow-up period was 25 months . Of the 332 individuals in the earlier-Artwork group, 259 were followed until the end of the study, 59 died, 6 withdrew, 2 were used in another service for follow-up, and 6 were lost to follow-up. Of the 329 participants in the later-Artwork group, 225 were followed until the end of the analysis: 90 died, 6 withdrew, 2 were transferred, and 6 were dropped to follow-up. The leading cause of death was tuberculosis in both groups . Survival Patients in the earlier-Artwork group had a significantly higher level of survival than did those in the later-ART group . The death rate was 8.28 per 100 person-years in the earlier-Artwork group and 13.77 per 100 person-years in the later-ART group .However, the researchers caution that the cross-sectional character of their study leaves them struggling to draw conclusions about causality from their observations.
