A Comprehensive Look at Clinical Trials
When a Clinical Trial Ends
As your participation in a trial draws to a close (several weeks or even several years after you started), you will start thinking about how to handle your HIV treatment after the trial ends. If you are receiving an experimental medication as part of the trial, you may continue to receive that medication, especially if it is about to become available by prescription. Members of the research team will work with you and your doctor to determine the best plan for your HIV treatment.
Many trial participants are interested in the results of their trial. The research team will inform you of the results as soon as they become available.
