Clinical Trials Forum: World AIDS Day (December 1), Boston
October 31, 2003
On World AIDS Day (December 1, 2003) Search for a Cure will hold a free community forum on clinical trials for persons with HIV -- including information on hepatitis and other co-infections, nutrition, microbicides, and other related topics. People can speak with researchers running the trials and with volunteers currently in studies, at information tables for many trials now open in New England. Experts will discuss what to consider when thinking about volunteering for a trial. Search for a Cure will distribute a manual on major HIV clinical trials in New England, and how to find out about trials elsewhere. A free dinner is included in this program.
Many AIDS trials are being seriously delayed because not enough patients enroll. Search for a Cure hopes to help increase enrollment when possible. Other organizations may want to try similar programs in their cities.
This free consumer forum will start with dinner from 5:30 to 6:30, followed by the program from 6:30 to 8:30, December 1, 2003, at The Ballroom at Longwood Towers, 20 Chapel St. in Brookline (across from Longwood D Line T stop). Call Search For A Cure at 617-536-2474 for reservations, and for directions or other information.
