Boston researchers share in $10 million grant to study HIV and alcohol
Date:9/26/2011

(Boston) Researchers from Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health (BUSM/BUSPH), Boston Medical Center (BMC), the University of California, San Francisco and the University of Pittsburgh, have joined together to examine the consequences of alcohol on HIV disease. The Uganda Russia Boston Alcohol Network for Alcohol Research Collaboration on HIV/AIDS (URBAN ARCH) will conduct and disseminate interdisciplinary alcohol/HIV research aimed at understanding the consequences of alcohol on HIV disease and advancing clinical approaches to mitigate its harm in the United States and globally. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) is funding this five year consortium of multiple investigators.

To realize this goal, the URBAN ARCH Consortium will incorporate the expertise of researchers in epidemiology, internal medicine, addiction medicine, HIV/AIDS, psychiatry and biostatistics under the leadership of Consortium principal investigator Jeffrey Samet, MD, MA, MPH, professor of medicine at BUSM and chief of the section of internal medicine at BMC, a leader in the field of HIV and clinical addiction medicine.

The Consortium studies will build on three existing HIV-infected cohorts from Boston, Uganda, and Russia with distinctive strengths and well-characterized alcohol consumption patterns. The two international cohorts allow study of clinical issues that would not be possible in the United States, yet have important implications for US HIV-infected populations.

According to Samet, during the four decades of the HIV epidemic, many questions remain about how alcohol use affects HIV clinical manifestations and how approaches beyond antiretroviral treatments might mitigate alcohol-related harms. "Such questions about the complex relationship between HIV and alcohol need to be addressed in order to accelerate the development of more effective treatments," said Samet.
