Ohio: HIV Vaccine Trial Seeks Participants
July 30, 2012
Men who have sex with men -- ages 18-50, HIV-negative and circumcised -- and transgender women are being recruited for an HIV vaccine trial at Case Western Reserve/University Hospitals AIDS Clinical Trials Unit. Cleveland is one of 18 sites nationwide taking part in the research, which began in early 2011 and is being conducted by the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. The trial is testing the safety and efficacy of a combination of two HIV vaccines to see if they stimulate an immune response or decrease the viral load of participants who later become infected. Neither vaccine can cause HIV infection. For more information, telephone Outreach Coordinator Bob Bucklew at 216-844-4444, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.hopetakesaction.org.
