Clinical Research

Today’s Commitment. Tomorrow’s Cure.

The Clinical Research Program at Prism Health North Texas was created after the Peabody Health Center was awarded a seven-year grant to be a network clinical research site (CRS) of National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) in 2006. In 2007, the organization began to partner with pharmaceutical companies to participate in industry-sponsored clinical trials. The Clinical Research Program has focused on research studies for HIV treatment, HIV Prevention, Hepatitis C Treatment, TB Prevention, and HIV co-morbidities such as HIV and Aging, HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders, and cardiovascular disease in patients living with HIV.

Open Clinical Research Studies

Community Advisory Board

The Research Program has an active Community Advisory Board (CAB) dedicated to community outreach and peer education. The CAB is made up of five men and two women who are passionate about HIV research, treatment, and prevention. The CAB meets every other month and reviews studies in the early phase of development to provide community feedback on the study’s design, which helps the sponsor improve study objectives, potential recruitment, and participant retention. The CAB also provides input on ways to recruit participants and keep them engaged while participating in a study.
