CONCLUSIONS: This post hoc analysis confirmed that patients with SZ + AUD had a worse illness course than patients with SZ-only and suggests that olanzapine may be associated with a longer time to first and recurrent exacerbations versus other antipsychotics in this difficult-to-treat population. Further research is needed to identify effective treatments for this important yet understudied patient population. TRIAL REGISTRATION: identifier: NCT00014001.

This study explored Black women's interest in, and barriers to adopting PrEP over 6 months. Thirty Black women (age M = 32.2) who experienced multiple substance use, violence and HIV-related syndemic factors were interviewed four times over a 6-month period.
