The Miriam Hospital’s clinical trials unit offers the newest
treatments for HIV and hepatitis C (HCV) infections. The experienced research
staff consists of physicians, nurses, a data manager, a regulatory assistant,
and laboratory personnel.
We conduct trials offered through the AIDS Clinical
Trials Group (ACTG) network, funded by the National Institutes of Health, in
association with the Partners/Harvard AIDS Clinical Trials Unit. The priority
of ACTG studies is to evaluate new strategies for treating HIV infection and
preventing HIV complications, and to evaluate new treatments for hepatitis C.
Other studies offered through our clinical trials unit
include pharmaceutical studies to treat hepatitis C, prevent C. difficile
infection, and test new methods of diagnosing HIV infection.
