New HIV Study Shows That Large Numbers of Women and People of Color Can Be Successfully Enrolled In U.S. HIV Clinical Studies
Date:7/20/2009

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Data from a historic HIV study demonstrate that it is possible to recruit large numbers of women, African Americans and Latinos into U.S.-based HIV-1 treatment studies. The study, known as GRACE, is the largest study to date in treatment-experienced adult women with HIV-1 to examine gender and race differences in response to an HIV-1 therapy -- PREZISTA(R) (darunavir) coadministered with ritonavir as part of combination therapy.

In recent HIV studies of treatment-experienced patients, women accounted for less than 11 percent of the patients being studied, on average. GRACE was able to enroll 67 percent women and 84 percent people of color.

The GRACE (Gender, Race And Clinical Experience) study demonstrated that through 48 weeks of therapy, there were no statistically significant differences in virologic response rates between treatment-experienced women and men receiving the protease inhibitor PREZISTA (600 mg twice daily with 100 mg ritonavir), with a background regimen. In addition, there were no clinically relevant gender-based differences in adverse events.

"GRACE not only showed us that PREZISTA/r had similar efficacy and tolerability in treatment-experienced men and women, but it also taught us that through unique recruitment and retention strategies, a large number of wome
