Where this therapy is not used for any reason, patients with visceral lesions, even asymptomatic, should be considered in accordance with the classification of ACTG (AIDS Clinical Trials Group
Oncology Committee) and treatment should be optimized.

These guidelines were prepared by a team of clinical scientists on the Cardiovascular Subcommittee of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group
(ACTG), who updated preliminary recommendations published in 2000.
