Abstract : Data updating clinical and vital status information were obtained during the past year of the study of HIV-positive service members lost to follow-up (LTF), and details are provided in report. The follow-up data reported on last year were given to the Army in December 1993; at that time, an additional batch of service members lost-to-follow-up was delivered to MFUA. Just prior to the writing of this report, another data file of lost to follow-up service members was sent to the MFUA; a data file was also received with individuals known to be deceased, but for whom no death certificate has been obtained. The MFUA will attempt to obtain death certificates for this latter group of individuals known to be dead. This report will refer to data and follow-up for the group reported on last year as "Batch4"; data received in January 1994 will be referred to as "Batch 5."
