Comprehensive HIV Program Research Interests and Clinical Trials


The Temple Comprehensive HIV Program has been involved in research trials and activities since 1990.  We participated in some of the early NIH-sponsored trials to prevent mother-to-child transmission.  We have been involved in the Division of AIDS Clinical Trials Network since 1994 as a unit in the Terry Beirn Community Programs on Clinical Research on AIDS (CPCRA).  Our investigators have been active on protocol teams and working groups.  In 2005, our unit had the distinction of finishing first among all the clinical units and sites in data quality and performance.


Since 1998, we have been part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Cerner HIV Outpatient Study (HOPS), a dynamic observational database that tracks clinical trends and outcomes in multiple centers across the United States.  We participate in multiple investigator-initiated and pharmaceutical-sponsored trials.
