Volunteering

What You Can Expect If You Decide To Volunteer

We will answer any questions you have to make sure you understand what is involved with participating in our study.

  • You will have physical exams that include blood tests.
  • Over the course of the study, you will get 10 IV infusions, once every 8 weeks. These take 30-60 minutes. They could contain the study antibody, or they could be a placebo (inactive).
  • You will be asked to keep track of how you feel for the 3 days following each IV. You and the site staff will be in contact about how you’re feeling during this time.
  • Follow-up visits will include HIV counseling and testing, and answering questions from the clinic staff. These visits will be shorter than visits where you get an IV.
