Landmark PrEP Study Seeks Black Men Who Have Sex With Men

By Katie Wurtzel

The HIV Prevention Trials Network has begun the process of screening men for possible involvement in what may be a landmark study.

The study, known as HPTN 073, will be studying pre-exposure prophylaxis initiation and adherence in HIV-negative black men who have sex with men. The study will occur at three of the network’s United States research facilities in Washington, D.C.; Chapel Hill, North Carolina; and Los Angeles. Those involved in the study will participate through colleges near the research facilities: George Washington University, University of North Carolina, and University of California, Los Angeles.

For more information tune into a live Twitter chat will be hosted on Wednesday, August 14 at 1p.m. EST on the HIV Prevention Trials Network’s page, @HIVptn, featuring the hashtag #PrEPChat.
