Yesterday was World AIDS day

Posted by Raznor

Well, I didn't post anything, but really I don't know what I could have said. But I do highly recommend this post over at Joe.My.God. And while you're there, if you happen to be a gay or bisexual man living in San Francisco, or know someone who is, read this post:

Today is World AIDS Day. The San Francisco Public Health Department contacted me and asked that I help publicize their new HIV prevention study, Project T.

"Project T, part of the HIV Research Section at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, is studying whether a commonly used HIV drug, tenofovir, is safe for healthy, HIV-negative gay and bisexual men. The same study is happening in Boston at Fenway Community Health and in Atlanta at the AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta.

Project T will evaluate the side effects and tolerability of daily tenofovir in healthy gay/bi men (biological safety) as well as whether taking a daily pill will affect men’s risk taking behavior (behavioral safety). If tenofovir is proven to be safe then it may be tested in future studies to see if it will prevent HIV infection. It is currently unknown whether tenofovir can prevent HIV infection.

Right now they're looking for gay and bisexual men in San Francisco to do this study. The details and links are here.
