HIV positive patients first presenting with an AIDS defining illness: characteristics and survival
 Poznansky MC, Coker R, Skinner C, Hill A, Bailey S, Whitaker L, Renton A, Weber J.
  The blunt result that AZT prophylaxis caused "...cytomegalovirus infection ... almost exclusively" in AZT-treated AIDS patients, was interpreted like this: "The study of patients who progress from primary HIV infection to AIDS without receiving medical intervention gives insights into the effects of medical intervention on presentation and survival after developing an AIDS defining illness". But the nature of these "insights" was not revealed by the authors.
