|7-7 clinical study
Jun 8, 2004
in a recent press release: In a small study conducted at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), researchers have shown that it may be feasible to treat HIV-infected patients with a simple, once-daily regimen of anti-HIV drugs given in pre-planned, 7-day-on, 7-day-off cycles. This approach is known formally as "short-cycle structured intermittent antiretroviral therapy" (SIT) or colloquially as the "7-7" approach. .....In this regard, randomized, controlled clinical trials are being conducted in various sites in the United States and other countries to evaluate the clinical usefulness of short-cycle SIT."
Can you please tell me how I can apply to be part of this clinical study? thank you
Response from Dr. Pierone
Several pilot studies of 7-7 have been reported and this is the larger follow up study to expand our knowledge about this interesting approach. Here is the link to the NIH web site that explains this trial. Good luck!
