HIV drug studies
« on: August 27, 2009, 02:24:11 AM »
Anyone else out there notice fewer and fewer hiv drug studies are available out there? I live in south florida......which has the 3rd most cases of hiv. I used to know of a ton of clinics down here that did hiv drug studies...on new meds. But now u can find very few studies down here. I always thought of doing a study as a backup if i every lose my drug coverage. So what is going on with this situation? Fewer new drugs coming onto the market maybe?

Hmmm...

I've had that in the back of my mind for the last 20 years. Sorry to state the obvious, not sure of what you know... have you tried Google for 'Clinical Trials'?  I find adding the year "2009" helps get more current hits..I'm going to do that myself in a few; if I find anything significant I'll post it here for you.

Good luck!

That was easy!  You had me worried there, for a bit!

Found, at http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=HIV+AND+Florida, 709 clinical trial listings, some looking for participants, some closed, etc..

Good Luck and thanks for the question: It is an area of interest to me but current events distracted me!

There's an organization called ACRIA that does a good job of listing current studies.

This is the link, under section called "Drug Trials:"

http://www.acria.org/index.php?q=trials/introduction

Also at www.clinicaltrials.gov you can search "HIV" and lots of things come out.

One of the big current studies, not sure if it is still open, is for Gilead's Quad pill.

There are also several ongoing studies with Isentress.

These two links are also good:
