ACRIA Trials in Progress

Summer 2010

People who have not taken HIV meds for at least 90 days will drink pomegranate juice or placebo juice daily for 10 to 18 weeks to study its effect on the heart, quality of life, and HIV viral load.


People 18 and older who have persistent diarrhea will take crofelemer (a new anti-diarrhea drug) or placebo tablets for 6 weeks. Then everyone will take crofelemer for 5 months.


People who have taken HIV drugs will receive infusions of ibalizumab (a monoclonal antibody designed to block HIV entry into CD 4 cells) twice a month for 24 weeks or longer, along with other HIV drugs.

For more information on these trials, contact us at 212-924-3934, ext. 121.
