To the Editor: In their study of breastfeeding
vs formula-feeding among women with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)
in Nairobi, Kenya, Dr Mbori-Ngacha and colleagues1
found no significant difference in 2-year infant mortality rates. However,
I have several concerns about the results of their study, which shows that
breastfed infants were more likely to experience the combined end point of
death or HIV infection at 2 years.
