A Comprehensive Look at Clinical Trials

2000

Clinical Trial Information Resources

If you've decided that you would like to learn more about participating in clinical trials, start by talking to your doctor. He or she probably knows about trials in the area.

There are a number of resources you can use to find the right clinical trial for your needs. For information about clinical trials in New York State and the surrounding area, call Community Research Initiative on AIDS (CRIA) at 212-924-3934 extension 121 or visit our website (www.criany.org). Study-Link, a project of Clinical Directors Network, also provides information about trials in the New York area (212-382-0699 extension 33). You can also call the AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service (ACTIS) for information about trials nationally (1-800-TRIALSA). ACTIS offers information in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Websites offering clinical trial information include HIV InSite from the University of California at San Francisco (hivinsite.ucsf.edu) and the Boston-based CenterWatch (www.centerwatch.com).


As a volunteer in a clinical trial, you can help yourself while helping others. We have come a long way in our understanding of HIV since the beginning of the epidemic thanks to people who joined clinical trials. As we continue to move forward, clinical trials will provide answers to many of the remaining questions about HIV infection. Without participants in clinical trials, we will never have more effective, safer drugs and treatment strategies.
