Community survey on treatment interruptions (ATIs) in cure research
Simon Collins, HIV i-Base
A new online community survey is looking to collect community views on antiretroviral treatment interruptions (ATIs) as part of cure-related research.
The increasing focus on finding an HIV cure – and the related goal of HIV remission without ART – has highlighted the importance of participant safety in studies that ask people to stop HIV treatment.
As treatment interruptions are no longer recommended in treatment guidelines, the importance of understanding both risk and benefits becomes an essential aspect of informed consent for such studies.
The online survey is collecting views on the different approaches to ATIs and additional information is included as part of the survey. Estimated time to complete the survey is 15-45 minutes.
This project is being run by the US community organisation Treatment Action Group (TAG).
