STRIDE2 is a longitudinal, non-randomized study of individuals living with HIV who are dependent on opioids. This study is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (R01DA030768, Altice, PI; Taxman & Lawson, Co-PIs) and is being conducted by George Mason University, Yale University, and Howard University.
The purpose of this early Phase 2 comparison trial is to evaluate the impact of community health worker (CHW) home visitors on pregnant women and their children in a rural setting in the rural Eastern Cape of South Africa. The intervention provided by the CHWs targets underweight children, mothers living with HIV (MLH), mothers using alcohol, and depressed mothers with the goal of supporting pregnant women to improve birth outcomes, decrease the number of children born with a low birthweight, and develop child caretaking skills over time. UCLA has identified and matched four areas surrounding primary health care clinics: two intervention areas in which this CHW program has been running for one year, and two control areas without the program. Mothers in the research area are followed for one year after giving birth.
The purpose of this project is to beta-test a brief waiting room video intervention that promotes early initiation of antiretroviral treatment among treatment-naïve HIV-positive patients, adherence to antiretroviral treatment and retention in care among HIV-positive patients currently on therapy, sexual risk reduction tailored to HIV-positive persons, and patient-initiated discussion of these topics with their health providers. The video is currently being created, and will be ready for beta-testing by June 1, 2016. Results of the beta-testing will be used to refine and improve the video before dissemination to HIV/AIDS treatment facilities nationally. This video project is being funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP).
An intervention study was designed to examine the impact of impact of community home-based care intervention on mental health and treatment outcome in HIV-positive people. The intervention comprised a home-based counseling on anti-retroviral therapy (ART) adherence, psycho social support, basic health care services at the home of HIV-positive people. The intervention started in March, 2018 and completed in August 2018. The major measurements of the interventions were ART adherence, status of depression, anxiety, and stress levels.
Prospective cross-sectional study at the outpatient clinic (OPC) of the Bagamoyo District Hospital (BDH) in Tanzania. Assessment of basic epidemiological data (Point prevalence and risk factors) on CKD with simple clinical, laboratory tests and the patients history. After informed consent blood samples are taken for complete blood count, serum creatinine, HbA1c, HIV-Screening, and urine samples for dipstick, urine sediment, and albumin-creatinine ratio. Further, office blood pressure, weight and height are taken. Further, patients history are asked by a questionnaire (i.e.history of infectious and cardiovascular diseases and basic demographic data: i.e. sex, age). CKD is defined as the presence of either impaired kidney function and/or albuminuria based on a one-time measurement. Primary outcome of the study are prevalence rates of CKD and the impact of non-communicable and communicable disorders on CKD.
This is a 2-part, single-dose, open label, randomized 3-way cross-over study to compare BA of pediatric study drugs TRIUMEQ and (DTG/3TC) in healthy volunteers under fasted conditions. Study will be conducted in 2-parts. Each part 1 and part 2 will comprise of 3-treatment periods (TP) where Part 1, will assess BA, of pediatric TRIUMEQ dispersible tablets with an adult TRIUMEQ conventional tablet formulation and Part 2, will assess BA, of pediatric DTG/3TC dispersible tablets with adult DTG and 3TC conventional tablets formulation. Total duration of study is 9-weeks and will be conducted in approximately 36 subjects. The 2-parts, may be run in parallel as they are independent of each other. TRIUMEQ is a registered trademark of GlaxoSmithKline group of companies.
The overall objective of this research is to use both qualitative and quantitative data to inform the development of a technology-based intervention for heavy drinking and sexual risk behavior among men who have sex with men (MSM) who are seeking free HIV testing. Investigators will be conducting a randomized-controlled pilot test of the intervention among MSM seeking HIV testing in community-based settings to explore its potential impact on alcohol and HIV-related behavioral outcomes. This research will ultimately produce a combined, theory-based, and technology- delivered intervention for heavy drinking and sex risk that is fully portable and has been preliminarily tested for efficacy in community settings where high-risk MSM engage with prevention services.
Drug interactions between antiretroviral drugs and concomitants drugs and between antiretroviral need to be studied HIV-population is ageing. The referential of interactions is the Liverpool base.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of 2 or 4 doses of MDX-010 in HIV-infected subjects
The investigator tested the efficacy of maraviroc intensification on down-regulating atherosclerotic progression in HIV infected patients with optimal viro-immunologic control and at high cardiovascular risk.
