HIV/AIDS High Priority Drug Abuse Research (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Funding for NIH high priority research relevant to drug misuse and HIV/AIDS. Research priorities revolve around the National Institute on Drug Abuse's Seek, Test, Treat, and Retain framework, and include reducing health disparities in the incidence of new HIV infections or in treatment outcomes of those living with HIV/AIDS. Populations of interest include urban, suburban, and rural drug users; populations at elevated risk for HIV, such as men who have sex with men; and people in rural areas who use opioids and injection drugs. Geographic coverage: Nationwide -- National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

AbstractDecision aids (DAs) are evidence-based tools that support shared decision-making (SDM) implementation in practice; this study aimed to identify existing osteoporosis DAs and assess their quality and efficacy; and to gain feedback from a patient advisory group on findings and implications for further research. We searched multiple bibliographic databases to identify research studies from 2000 to 2019 and undertook an environmental scan (search conducted February 2019, repeated in March 2020). A pair of reviewers, working independently selected studies for inclusion, extracted data, evaluated each trial ’s risk...

In more than 30% of dental implant cases, existing bone graft materials fail to achieve the desired clinical results, and another bone graft procedure must be conducted, increasing the overall time and cost of the treatment. That's where LaunchPad Medical could potentially change the game with its new dental bone graft solution based on the company's Tetranite technology. The Lowell, MA-based company won a $1.8 million grant from the Michigan-Pittsburgh-Wyss Regenerative Medicine Resource Center to initiate a pivotal animal study of its technology. The grant was funded by the National Institutes of Health's Nat...

This study aimed to evaluate the quality of life of elderly living with HIV in Recife (PE), Brazil. This is a descriptive, quantitative cross-sectional study with convenience and random sample of 241 subjects. The HIV/AIDS Target Quality of Life (HAT-QoL) instrument was applied. The quality of life was compromised in the areas of confidentiality (51.89), sexual function (63) and financial concerns (64.74). The best scores were medication concerns (87.91), health concerns (86.80), and HIV acceptance (82.78). Men scored for a better quality of life in all realms. We can conclude that among the factors associated with better ...
