WITHDRAWN PLANS TO EXPAND PROUD STUDY
19th January 2015
Given that the PROUD pilot study has answered theimportant question of how much protection daily Truvada can offer when provided in sexual health clinics in the UK, there is no need for the planned larger clinical trial. As such, we have withdrawn our funding application to reopen the PROUD study for new recruitment.
In addition to daily Truvada, there is a range of other PrEP options in various stages of research. We are in the process of talking to our partner organisations in order to identify which PrEP research questions we should address next in the UK.
If you would like to receive updates on the development of a research agenda around PrEP including future PrEP studies, and on the development of a PrEP policy in the UK, you can sign up to the new MRC CTU PrEP Update mailing list at www.proud.mrc.ac.uk/PrEPupdate. The MRC will be emailing the people who have already expressed an interest in volunteering in future PrEP studies to invite them to join this list.
