This report emphasizes the obstacles to microbicide research and how to overcome them.
Summary of trials of PRO 2000: HPTN 035 and MDP 301 (PDF) - AVAC
This table was created to help advocates compare the study design of two large-scale effectiveness trials that tested the efficacy of the PRO 2000 microbicide candidate.
AVAC works closely with several partners in the microbicide field - the Global Campaign for Microbicides, the International Partnership for Microbicides and the International Rectal Microbicide Advocates will be working with them on building out the resources for this section.
The Alliance for Microbicide Development is no longer hosting a website at www.microbicide.org. However, to assure continued availability of the key data, resources, and information produced by the Alliance over the past 12 years, the Alliance is transferring many of them to AVAC. AVAC will continue to provide these and/or similar microbicide resources to the public and the following Alliance microbicide resources will also continue to be available on this web page:
Visit the Microbicide Research and Development Database (MRDD)
The MRDD is a comprehensive source of information on microbicide candidate products, clinical trials, and supportive research. The MRDD was developed and maintained by the Alliance for Microbicide Development (AMD) until its closing at the end of 2009. AVAC has relaunched the MRDD and is expanding the database to include information on the range of biomedical HIV prevention research options. Updates are ongoing so please check back regularly.
Visit the Clinical Trial Site Capacity Database
Launched in 2007, the Clinical Trial Site Capacity Database provides a comprehensive inventory of microbicide clinical trial site’s clinical, laboratory, and staffing capacity. The goals of the Site Capacity Database are to optimize efficient use of existing sites and minimize costly development of new sites. The Clinical Trial Site Capacity Database was developed and maintained by the Alliance for Microbicide Development (AMD) until its closing at the end of 2009.
AVAC has relaunched the Clinical Trial Site Capacity Database and is expanding the database to include information on the range of biomedical HIV prevention research options. Updates are ongoing so please check back regularly.
