Researchers at UAB are looking for individuals ages 18 or older who want to make a difference in the fight against HIV by taking part in a research study to test a new rectal medication. The medication is being developed to protect against HIV infection during anal sex. The study involves 10 visits during a period of 3 to 4 months. During this time, you will insert the product rectally at 2 of the visits and have rectal biopsies collected at 5 of the visits. Physical exams and HIV/STI testing will be provided at no cost, and you will be compensated up to $1,275 for your time. For more information, call 205-996-4099.

UAB is conducting a study to see what kinds of products people would prefer to use before anal sex— a douche, an insert, or a suppository. Participants will be asked to use each product for a period of 1 month and complete surveys about their experience with each one. There is no active drug in any of the products being used. The study lasts about 3 months, and you will complete a total of 8 visits. Physical exams and HIV/STI testing will be provided at no cost. If you complete all study visits, you will be compensated up to $700 for your time.  If you are HIV-negative, age 18-35 and are a man, transgender man or transgender woman, you may be eligible to participate.
