When prophecy fails: How to better predict success in HIV prevention clinical trials
Date:12/7/2011

le is what the patient reports. "And so if you ask someone did you take all your doses, most will say yes," Kashuba said "People want to be considered good study participants, and sometimes they just can't remember how many doses they took last week, or in the last month, be it almost all of the doses or half of them."

The UNC researcher points to lessons learned: "Before delving into a clinical trial, we need to keep in mind that when someone takes a pill, you can't assume that the drug gets in all places at the same amount. And before we can select the drugs and the right doses for a clinical trial, we need to know what concentrations in tissue prevent HIV infection. They could be different."

And along with the above, the authors emphasize the need to develop ways to objectively measure drug-taking behavior in clinical studies so that the research can be designed and interpreted correctly.
