Ohio: HIV Vaccine Trial Seeking Participants

January 14, 2011

For its role in a national HIV vaccine trial, Case Western Reserve/University Hospitals Clinical Trials Unit is seeking men who have sex with men who are HIV-negative, circumcised, and between the ages of 18 and 50; male-to-female transgender participants also are sought. The study, conducted by the HIV Vaccine Trials Network, is testing the safety and efficacy of a combination of two vaccines to determine whether they stimulate an immune response to HIV or decrease the amount of virus in the blood should a participant later become infected. The vaccines cannot cause HIV infection. Sites in 16 US cities are taking part in the study. For more information, visit, e-mail or telephone Outreach Coordinator Bob Bucklew at 216-844-4444.
