  • Adaptive Intervention to Facilitate PrEP Uptake/Adherence Among Transgender Women

    open to eligible males ages 18 years and up

    "PrEP N' Shine" is a two-stage randomized controlled pilot trial which utilizes a behavioral intervention to optimize the uptake and adherence of Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) in Transgender women (TGW).

  • Comparing Mobile Health Strategies to Improve Pre-exposure Prophylaxis Use (PrEP) for HIV Prevention

    open to eligible people ages 15 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two mobile health technologies (text messaging or a mobile app) designed to help people take HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as directed by the clinic. PrEP is the use of a daily anti-HIV medications by HIV-negative people to help prevent HIV infection.

  • EASE: The Materna Prep Pivotal Study

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    This study is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Materna Prep Device in reducing pelvic muscle injuries during vaginal delivery. Subjects are randomized to Materna Prep Device or Standard of Care without use of the Materna Prep Device Intervention with the Materna Prep Device is expected to be a one-time use of approximately 30-90 minutes during the 1st stage of labor. Subject participation in the study is targeted to be 3 months from the time of the use of the device during delivery. Subjects who elect to continue participation in the long term follow up portion of the study will extend their time in the study to 10 years.

  • Onboarding Positives and PrEP Users to Engage Negatives (OPPEN): Peer-driven Education to Link YMSM of Color to PrEP

    open to eligible males ages 18-29

    Onboarding Positives and PrEP users to Engage Negatives (OPPEN) is an intervention to train young Latino and Black men who have sex with men (YMSM of color) living with HIV or using pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to promote PrEP use among HIV-negative YMSM of color in their social networks. This pilot randomized controlled trial will evaluate OPPEN's acceptability, feasibility, and preliminary effect on PrEP care engagement among YMSM of color.

  • PrEP Affect Regulation Treatment Innovation

    open to eligible males ages 18 years and up

    This multi-site randomized controlled trial enrolling sexual minority men who use stimulants and are currently taking pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). This randomized controlled trial will test the efficacy of a PrEP Affect Regulation Treatment Innovation (PARTI) condition comprised of a 5-session positive affect intervention delivered during smartphone-based Contingency Management (CM) for directly observed PrEP doses (PARTI+CM) compared to an attention-control condition delivered during CM. The primary outcome is HIV acquisition risk measured using a combination of tenofovir-diphosphate levels in dried blood spots that are indicative of sub-optimal adherence to PrEP and recent condomless anal sex.

  • Study to Assess the Effectiveness and Safety of Lenacapavir for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 16 years and up

    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of lenacapavir (LEN) in preventing the risk of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - 1 infection relative to the background HIV-1 incidence rate. The study will be conducted in 2 parts: a cross-sectional study (Incidence Phase) and a double-blind, randomized study (Randomized Phase). The Incidence Phase will include initial assessments that will provide an estimate of the concurrent background HIV-1 incidence rate. The Randomized Phase of the study will have a Blinded Phase, a LEN Open-label Extension (OLE) Phase, and a pharmacokinetic (PK) Tail Phase. The primary objective for the Incidence Phase of this study is to estimate the HIV-1 background incidence rate. The primary objective of the Randomized Blinded Phase of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of lenacapavir for HIV-1 pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in cisgender men (CGM), transgender women (TGW), transgender men (TGM), and gender nonbinary people (GNB) ≥ 16 years of age who have condomless receptive anal sex with partners assigned male at birth and are at risk for HIV-1 infection.

  • Digital Health Feedback System (DHFS) for Longitudinal Monitoring of ARVs Used in HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study uses an ingestion sensor and a wearable sensor (worn as a patch on the skin), which are new Proteus Digital Health (PDH) technologies approved by the FDA, to collect information about patients taking their Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) medication for HIV prevention. The wearable sensor records information, which is uploaded wirelessly to a mobile device and then to a secure computer. Together the sensors and the mobile device transmitting the information to the study computer are called a digital health feedback system (DHFS), which gives healthcare providers information about when patients have taken their PrEP medication. The purpose of the study is to demonstrate that the DHFS is easy to use and acceptable to people taking PrEP; that patients will persist with its use; and that the system provides valid, accurate measures of adherence.

  • Evaluation of Doxycycline Post-exposure Prophylaxis to Reduce Sexually Transmitted Infections in PrEP Users and HIV-infected Men Who Have Sex With Men

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to understand if taking an antibiotic called doxycycline by mouth as soon as possible after sexual contact without a condom can reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis. The study will also look at the safety of doxycycline PEP and the impact that PEP may have on the bacteria that cause STIs as well as on bacteria that normally live on the body. While doxycycline is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), taking doxycycline immediately after sexual contact to prevent infection is investigational and is not approved by the FDA for this use. Participants will take part in the study for 1 year.

  • Oral Islatravir (MK-8591) Once-Monthly as Preexposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) in Men and Transgender Women Who Are at High Risk for HIV-1 Infection (MK-8591-024)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of oral Islatravir (ISL) once monthly (QM) as Preexposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) in cisgender men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women (TGW) who have sex with men and who are at high risk of HIV-1 infection with 48 or 96 weeks of treatment and a minimum follow-up of 42 days.

  • PrEP Point-of-Care Brief-Intervention for Adherence Among Young Men Who Have Sex With Men

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Despite advances in HIV prevention, the HIV incidence among young men who have sex with men (YMSM) is increasing, threatening to derail achievement of the United States End the HIV Epidemic goals. Although, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a highly effective HIV prevention method, adherence was sufficiently low to comprise efficacy among a high proportion of YMSM in multiple clinical trials and demonstration projects. In this study, the investigators will leverage a novel urine point-of-care drug-level test for PrEP adherence, to both enhance and target motivational-interviewing-based adherence counseling among YMSM, with the goal of preventing HIV infections among this critically at-risk group.
