NIAID AIDS Studies Target COVID
After spending 10 years working on AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) studies supporting sites and developing plans to address challenges faced in resource-limited settings, I was not surprised to learn that the ACTG had started one large study to help us understand global vaccination rates among people with HIV. NIAID established The AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) by a cooperative agreement with research universities like the University of California San Diego to lead the largest Network of expert clinical and translational investigators and therapeutic clinical trials units in the world. The network includes sites in resource-limited countries. These investigators and units serve as the major resource for HIV/AIDS research, treatment, care, and training/education in their communities.
They have conducted several clinical trials that have shown promise for preventing cardiovascular events in this people with HIV including REPRIEVE and COVID-19 vaccinations; these studies are collecting data on both topics as part of the same research project which began last year at an international level.

The ACTG says on their website, “Approximately 60 percent of all new infections with the virus occur in persons younger than 25 years old. This ACTG study will collect data from those who have been vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine and compare it to those who were not vaccinated at all. The hope is that this research will provide insight into how effective the vaccine may be against cardiovascular events such as stroke or heart attack which can lead to death.”
The ACTG study aims to compare the health outcomes of those who have been vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine versus nonvaccinated individuals. The hope is that this research will provide insight into how effective vaccines can be against cardiovascular events such as stroke or heart attack which could lead to death.
