NIAID Needs HIV+ Volunteers
HIV-positive volunteers are needed for a phase I/II clinical trial testing the safety and effectiveness of a new interleukin-2 (IL-2) analogue called BAY 50-4798. This study will test whether BAY 50-4798 causes immunologic changes similar to conventional IL-2 but with milder side effects. Patients must be on HIV medications, have a viral load less than 10,000, CD4 count of at least 200, and not have had prior IL-2 therapy. Travel assistance may be provided. Call Jocelyn Voell, (301) 435-7913.
Healthy Volunteers Needed
NIAID seeks healthy male and female volunteers ages 18-40 years for a research study to determine whether lopinavir/ritonavir (anti-viral medication) has direct effects on how the lining of the arteries function before and after receiving 4 weeks of therapy. In order to participate, you must be a non-smoker in good health, not be HIV-infected and not be taking any chronic medications. Participants will be compensated. Call Jocelyn Voell, (301) 435-7913.
HIV+ Volunteers Needed
HIV+ volunteers with CD4 T cells greater than 500 cells/mm3 and viral loads less than 50 copies/mL are needed for a treatment-interruption study. Participants may be eligible for this study if they have never received IL-2, have never had a CD4+ count under 200 cells/mm3, do not have any significant medical problems, and are willing to halt their antiretroviral medications with close supervision. Travel assistance may be provided. Call Rosanne Burke, (301) 435-7937.
