Soler, R A; Howard, M; Brink, N S; Gibb, D; Tedder, R S; Nadal, D (1996). Regression of AIDS-Related Kaposi's Sarcoma During Therapy with Thalidomide. Clinical Infectious Diseases, 23(3):501-503.

Abstract

A 14-year-old girl with HIV infection and subcutaneous Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) received thalidomide therapy for oral ulcers, resulting in regression of KS lesions, disappearance of KS-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) DNA from blood, and reduced viral load in tumor tissue. Administration of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor resulted in clinical exacerbation of KS and reappearance of KSHV DNA in blood
