A total of 40 HIV infected patients will be randomly assigned into intervention or control group. Participants in the intervention group will use an smart phone application for two months. Participants will receive reminder notifications and use the app to take and send videos of themselves taking the pill(s), uploaded videos will be centrally reviewed by a study nurse . Control group participants will receive standard care. Antiretroviral Therapy adherence will be measured by self-report, pill count, and smart bottle as well as the App. Participants' perceptions of app using experience will be recorded via face to face interview.
HIV virus is an etiologic agent of ( AIDS ) immunodeficiency syndrome . It is known that the estimated rate of transfer from mother to baby is 25% to 45%, pregnancy rate is 5-10%, pregnancy rate is 15-20% and in lactation period is 5-10%. Risk factors; maternal viral load, breastfeeding, vaginal birth, and prematurity. Although there is a high rate of false positivity in prenatal screening in our country, one of the factors affecting this is the number of pregnancies.
The study seeks to enroll 501+ patients to use a HIV self testing device to test for HIV in a blood sample drawn by finger prick. The purpose of the trial is to assess the usability of the device by providing participants with video and written instructions on how to correctly obtain a result from the device.
The focus of this project was to reduce alcohol consumption among male "persons living with HIV" (PLHIV) on antiretroviral treatment (ART) at government hospitals in urban Maharashtra, India and factors associated with both these outcomes including depression, stigma, social support networks, quality of life and health status. The project consisted of three phases; formative research, implementation of multilevel interventions and analysis of process and outcome data. The project utilized a crossover design to compare outcomes of individual interventions and the sequences of intervention.
Assessment of the sensitivity, specificity and reproducibility of the VioOne HIV Profile Supplemental Assay
This study is designed to evaluate safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a single 1200-mg dose of raltegravir (MK-0518, ISENTRESS®) in healthy Japanese male participants.
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.
This is a first time in human (FTIH), 2-period study, to assess the relative bioavailability of a mesylate salt capsule of GSK3640254, compared to a bis- hydrochloride salt capsule of GSK3640254, in healthy subjects, administered following a moderate calorie and fat meal. The subjects will be randomized to 2 sequences, Regimen AB or Regimen BA. For Regimen AB: The Regimen A, which will include oral administration of GSK3640254 bis-hydrochloride Capsule 200 milligram (mg) (reference), which will be administered, in Period 1 and Regimen B will include GSK3640254 Mesylate salt capsule (test), 200 mg, which will be administered in Period 2. For the regimen BA, the regimen B, will be administered, in Period 1 and regimen A, in Period 2. Each of the regimens will be given orally as 2 capsules in the morning, as per randomization sequence. There will be a minimum washout of 7 days between each dose of study treatment. A total, of 14 subjects, are planned to be enrolled in the study. The maximum duration of the study from screening to follow-up is approximately 7 weeks.
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).
