Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
1971 participants were randomized at 139 sites in 11 countries. The first randomization was on 30 April 1999 and the last randomization was on 28 September 2002. Sites who re-consented 2/3 or more of their participants to Version 3 of the protocol were included in the analysis cohort. There are 1695 participants in the analysis cohort.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Proleukin Plus Antiretroviral Therapy Patients receive an initial dose of 4.5 MIU of proleukin twice daily for 5 consecutive days every 8 weeks during the first year (6 cycles total). After the first year, additional cycles are given to either achieve or maintain the patient's CD4+ count goal. CD4+ goal is defined as an increase of 125 cells/cubic mm for participants in the 50-199 CD4+ count stratum, and an increase of 175 cells/cubic mm for participants in the 200-299 CD4+ stratum. In addition, all patients must be prescribed combination antiretroviral drug treatment. The choice of combination therapy is left to the discretion of the treating clinician. Investigators will use their national guidelines for determining when antiretroviral therapy should be changed and for when determining when therapy should be used. All patients must take antiretroviral therapy during each 5-consecutive-day treatment cycle.
Antiretroviral Therapy Only All patients must be prescribed combination antiretroviral drug treatment. The choice of combination therapy is left to the discretion of the treating clinician. Investigators will use their national guidelines for determining when antiretroviral therapy should be changed and for when determining when therapy should be used.
