Figure 1: KM versus CIF, Cumulative incidence for types of first line HAART discontinuations in 1136 HIV infected patients.
Cumulative incidences according to 1-KM (standard survival) and CIF (competing risk approach) for first-line HAART discontinuations due to intolerance, treatment failure, treatment simplification and other causes. For each of the four events, 1-KM over estimates cumulative incidence. The differences between the two approaches were larger as the duration of follow-up increased.
