What is a research study?

HIV / AIDS clinical trials are carefully designed research studies that involve people and are designed to answer specific questions about safety and effectiveness of treatment for HIV / AIDS and related conditions.

Clinical trials are vitally important because these are no other direct ways to learn how different people respond to medications, treatments, or theraputic approaches. Clinical trials are also called research studies or protocols.

All approved treatments for HIV / AIDS must be tested through clinical trials before they can be marketed to treat HIV infection or related conditions. HIV / AIDS clinical trials may provide critical information that can help people to live longer, healthier and more comfortable lives.
