HERMITAGE A randomized controlled trial of 700 HIV-infected patients with risky alcohol consumption to test the effectiveness of a US HIV secondary prevention program, Healthy Relationships Intervention. COMPLETE PDF PDF N/A
IMPACT A cross-sectional study of 100 HIV-infected Russian adults from the HERMITAGE cohort to investigate the relationship between drug abuse and HIV disease progression. COMPLETE PDF PDF Plasma, PBMC
PREVENT A randomized controlled trial of 180  alcohol and drug dependent patients  in substance abuse treatment to develop and test the feasibility of adapting and implementing an efficacious US HIV prevention intervention in a Russian substance abuse treatment center. COMPLETE PDF PDF N/A
LINC  A randomized control trial of 349 Russian HIV-infected people who inject drugs (PWID) to improve upon the treat and retain dimensions of the “seek, test, treat, and retain” paradigm in Russia. COMPLETE PDF PDF N/A
St PETER A 4-arm placebo-controlled randomized controlled trial (RCT) among 400 HIV+ heavy drinking smokers to compare the effects of varenicline, cytisine, and nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to reduce: 1) alcohol use and craving, 2) smoking; and 3) inflammation and risk for CHD and mortality. COMPLETE PDF PDF Serum and plasma, Dried blood spots
SCRIPT A randomized, 2-arm pilot study, to support HIV-positive people who inject drugs (PWID) coping with dual internalized stigma related to HIV and substance use, to compare Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with standard of care. COMPLETE PDF PDF N/A
LINC-II A two-armed randomized controlled trail among 240 HIV-positive PWID to implement and evaluate a multi-faceted intervention combining pharmacological therapy (i.e., rapid access to ART and receipt of naltrexone for opioid use disorder) and 12 months of strengths-based case management. FOLLOW-UP PDF PDF N/A
Russia HIV Latent Reservoirs A study to address how opioid use alters the immune response in HIV patients and to develop a method to assess HIV latency among people who use opioids COMPLETE N/A N/A PBMC, Plasma
ACME  A study nested within the St PETER HIV trial to determine if changes in the gut microbiome are associated with heavy alcohol use; to determine the effect of dysbiosis on intestinal permeability, microbial translocation, inflammation, and trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) levels; and if changes in the bacteria of the gut are associated with changes in cardiac structure and function. COMPLETE PDF PDF Fecal, Nasal, Dried blood spots, Blood
TMAO A study nested within the St PETER HIV trial to assess whether heavier alcohol use is associated with increased trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), and subsequently whether increased TMAO levels are associated with subclinical measures and biomarkers of heart failure. COMPLETE PDF PDF Fecal
PETER Pain UH2 A pilot study to assess the feasibility, tolerability, and safety of using low-dose naltrexone and standard dose nalmefene to treat pain among people living with HIV (PLWH) with alcohol use and chronic pain. COMPLETE PDF PDF N/A
PETER Pain UH3 A pilot study to compare effects of low-dose naltrexone and gabapentin to placebo among HIV-positive persons with heavy alcohol use and chronic pain. FOLLOW-UP PDF PDF N/A

FAST PATH A SAMHSA-funded clinical program of 450 patients with alcohol or drug dependence who are at high-risk for transmitting or contracting HIV through risky drug or sexual behaviors to provide substance abuse treatment in conjunction with medical care and HIV prevention and risk reduction counseling in primary care settings. COMPLETE PDF PDF N/A
HIV-LIVE A prospective cohort study of 400 HIV-infected patients with a history of alcohol problems to investigate the relationship between alcohol and HIV progression and related factors in the context of the additional exposure of HCV infection. COMPLETE PDF PDF Serum
4F A prospective cohort study of 400 HIV-infected patients with a high prevalence of exposure to alcohol, illicit drugs, and polypharmacy to 1) test the associations between alcohol (and illicit drugs and polypharmacy) and falls (fractures secondarily), and 2) test the associations between alcohol (and illicit drugs and polypharmacy) and acute healthcare utilization. FOLLOW-UP PDF PDF N/A
Internet-based Video-Conferencing UH2 An intervention development and preliminary testing project involving feedback from experts, qualitative interviews, test cases, and an open trial conducted with 8 heavy drinking HIV-positive patients. This UH2 seeks to develop a novel, integrated behavioral approach to reduce heavy drinking and chronic pain among patients in HIV care delivered via internet-based videoconferencing. COMPLETE PDF PDF N/A


TAJ STUDY A cross-sectional study of 500 HIV-infected men who purchase sex and among HIV-infected women who sell sex recruited from Mumbai and Guntur to enable development of intervention research to address alcohol-related risky sex and, ultimately, reduce the transmission of HIV in India.
