The pair of Phase 2b clinical trials run by the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN), which is headquartered at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in the US, and the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) have enrolled 4625 participants who are at risk for HIV infection from communities in the US, Brazil, Peru, Switzerland, and sub-Saharan Africa.
Complete enrolment will facilitate the timely analysis of the combined data of the AMP studies as well as trial-specific data, enabling researchers to answer the study questions efficiently.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, is sponsoring and funding the trials.
The principal investigator of the HVTN, virologist and faculty member at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Dr Larry Corey, said: “We are grateful to each study participant and their communities for making a commitment to participate in the AMP studies. Study participants are the heartbeat of our global clinical trials.”
