Massachusetts General Hospital - Recruitment Strategies

We will enroll 50 HIV positive patients and 20 HIV negative subjects in this study. Individuals regularly followed in the Infectious Disease clinic at MGH or who are referred to MGH for the purpose of this study will be informed about the study and if interested in participating will be screened for eligibility. Subjects currently enrolled in other clinical studies conducted by the Ragon Institute who have given permission to be contacted regarding other studies may also be recruited for possible participation. Additionally, some subjects may be self referred in response to IRB approved study advertisements/postings distributed for the purpose of subject recruitment.
