Randomized, Controlled Intervention Trial of Male Circumcision for Reduction of HIV Infection Risk: The ANRS 1265 Trial
This figure describes the state of the trial corresponding to planned visits up to 30 April 2005. HIV-positive and HIV-negative participants were randomized. All were followed, but only participants HIV-negative at randomization were analyzed and are represented in the three follow-up visits of the figure. After randomization, the participants could attend the 3-mo visit, miss it, or be excluded from follow-up (death or loss to follow-up). The non-excluded participants who attended the 3-mo visit could then attend the 12-mo visit, miss it, or be excluded (death or loss to follow-up). The non-excluded participants of the 12-mo visit could then attend the 21-mo visit, be excluded (death or loss to follow-up) or were planning to attend the 21-mo visit but had not yet done so, because of the interruption of the trial.
*, did not come for the scheduled visit (refused, withdrew, moved away or died); **, no blood sample
