This is a randomized controlled clinical trial in which adults receiving drug abuse treatment will be recruited to participate in a multi-center HIV testing and counseling study. The purpose of this study is to assess the relative effectiveness of three HIV testing strategies on increasing receipt of test results: (1) on-site HIV rapid testing with brief, participant-tailored prevention counseling, (2) on-site HIV rapid testing with information only, and (3) referral for off-s...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the feasibility of a rapid HIV testing program in the Temple University Hospital(TUH)Emergency Department. We hypothesize that a rapid HIV testing program in the TUH Emergency Department is feasible. Patients presenting to the Adult TUH Emergency Department with certain conditions will be offered rapid HIV testing. Testing will be performed by oral swab using the OraQuick Advance test. Patients will receive post-test counseling.
CDC recommends universal HIV testing in all adults, at least once during life, to reduce the pool of infected patients unaware of their status. Routine universal HIV testing can use "classical" ELISA tests from serum, or rapid tests, ideally from finger-stick whole blood (FSB), which have shown close predictive values from classical tests. The investigators will compare the acceptability and feasibility of the two methods.
The Rapid-EC pilot study will determine feasibility of providing rapid point-of-care (POC) testing for HCV in community clinics, and whether the availability of POC testing increases uptake of testing, engagement in care and completion of treatment among people who inject drugs. The POC tests being utilised in this study are the OraQuick mouth swab test for the presence of HCV antibodies, and the Xpert HCV RNA viral load test using serum.
Blood is the most commonly used specimen to test for HIV. In the past 20 years, use of saliva as an alternative specimen for HIV testing has been explored. Today, very sensitive tests have been formulated and have been used for diagnosing HIV in adults and older children. OraQuick, a rapid test, is one such example. It is a devise that can be used to collect as well test the saliva. Most studies done on the use of saliva have been carried out in adults and have produced ...
The objective of this proposal is to develop an optimal testing strategy for HCV and HIV in high prevalence settings, such as detoxification centers with a large proportion of young injection drug users. The latest venipuncture testing will be compared to rapid finger stick testing for HCV and HIV. Outcomes for each strategy among individuals admitted at a short-term drug detoxification center will be determined.
OraQuick is a safe, rapid test that accurately identifies HIV in as little as 20 minutes. By providing an accurate, quick method for detecting a person’s serostatus and access to immediate post-test counseling, rapid testing has a crucial role in identifying HIV status and improving post-test counseling rates in populations who are at high risk of HIV infection and high failure to return rates. This prospective randomized control trial compared the educational effectiveness o...
Objective: This research agreement brings together French and Canadian teams of scientists, HIV testing centers and community based partners. The aim is to explore the feasibility and limitations of offering community based rapid HIV testing to men who have sex with men (MSM).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the availability of home self-testing for HIV will increase HIV testing frequency among men who have sex with men without negatively impacting their risk for HIV acquisition.
Background: HIV testing is cost-effective in unselected general medical populations, yet testing rates among those at-risk remain low, even among those with regular primary care. HIV rapid testing is effective in many healthcare settings but scant research has been done within primary care settings, nor within the US Department of Veteran's Affairs Healthcare System. Objectives: We evaluated three methods proven effective in other diseases/settings: Nurse standing ord...
Qualitative assessment of implementing routine HIV rapid testing in primary care clinics within VA
This is a randomized clinical trial to assess the effect of rapid, near point-of-care testing for multiple common respiratory viruses and bacteria on antibiotic and anti-influenza medication use in emergency department (ED) patients with symptoms of influenza-like illness (ILI) and/or upper respiratory infection (URI). The intervention is a rapid, multi-respiratory pathogen nucleic acid amplification panel test (FilmArray Respiratory Panel; BioFire Diagnostics, LLC) with clinic...
The RAPID-VL study will take place in 20 HIV care health facilities in Southwestern Uganda. The study will test the hypothesis that a multi-component intervention package that targets barriers to efficient and timely HIV viral load (VL) testing will improve test ordering, speed up result turnaround times, and improve the quality of VL results counseling to patients. Phase 1 of the study will consist of a 1-year retrospective medical record review in all participating health fac...
- Purpose - to validate a combination of biological and clinical markers in the rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) population as indicative of the pre-symptomatic stage of idiopathic (sporadic) Parkinson's disease (PD). - Procedures - All subjects (RBD diagnosis and controls) will have 1) a medical and neuro history and physical including videotape of movements, 2) neuropsychological testing, 3) a sleep study, 4) olfactory testing, ...
5-10% of breast cancer patients carry a mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. Genetic counseling and DNA testing are usually offered to selected patients after primary treatment has been completed (e.g. the first year after diagnosis). For women with a mutation in one of the two breast-ovarian cancer syndrome genes, chances of a second breast cancer are high, and therefore a proportion of these women may opt for preventive measures in addition to their immediate breast cancer tr...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of a rapid diagnostic test (Paracheck Pf) for the diagnosis of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria by community health workers at village level in Tanzania and how the use of rapid diagnostic test may influence prescription of antimalarial drugs. The hypothesis is that rapid diagnostic tests used by community health workers will reduce the use of antimalarial drugs (Coartem; Novartis) by 30% without affecting the ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the rapid antigen detection test for Group A streptococcal pharyngitis diagnosis might yield higher rates of false positive results in patients who have been treated for GAS pharyngitis within 28 days of the test.
In a randomized, controlled clinical trial, point-of care testing at the bedside using the cardiac biomarker troponin I in ED patients with possible ACS will be compared to traditional testing of this assay for myocardial necrosis obtained in the central laboratory. Our hypothesis: point-of-care testing for troponin I will decrease the time for disposition of patients with possible ACS in the emergency setting and decrease the time required for administering appropriate therapi...
The purpose of this study is to test the effects of different persuasive informational messages on rates of rapid HIV testing and willingness to participate in a HIV vaccine clinical trial. Adult African-American, non-Latina White, and Latina women will be recruited. Women will initially be randomized to 4 groups: 1. no message control; 2. 1-sided message that mentions benefits of HIV testing; 3. 2-sided message that acknowledges minor opposition to testing, then refutes the op...
The National Malaria Control Program in Uganda is replacing Chloroquine and Fansidar combination at facility and community level with Artemesinin-based combination (ACTs. The Introduction of such highly efficacious but expensive drug may lead to excessive use, increased costs and resistance. Rapid diagnosis for malaria could improve diagnosis, cost effectiveness and quality of care.
RAPIDS-GN is a multi-center, prospective, randomized, controlled trial to evaluate the following strategies for patients with confirmed gram-negative bacillus bacteremia (GNB): 1. Standard culture and antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST); or 2. Rapid identification and AST using the Accelerate PhenoTest™ BC Kit, performed on the Accelerate Pheno™ System (AXDX)
This research is being done to see if two rapid bedside tests (OSOM Trichomonas Rapid Test and BVBlue Test) that give results in 10 minutes are as accurate as standard tests (that take up to 7 days to get results) to diagnose common vaginal infections (Trichomonas and bacterial vaginosis). Both rapid tests (OSOM and BVBlue) are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be used by healthcare professionals to aid in the diagnosis of these infections. This study ...
This study will seek to determine if rapid genomic sequencing improves outcomes for acutely ill infants. The investigator will enroll up to 1,000 acutely ill infants in a prospective, randomized, blinded study to either rapid Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) or rapid Whole Exome Sequencing (WES, which is 2% of the genome and ~4-fold less expensive). Outcomes will be measured both by objective clinical measures and family perceptions (patient/family centered outcomes). Primary anal...
This study was initially designed to compare the effectiveness of two different approaches to providing routine HIV counseling, testing, and referral services in an urban hospital emergency department setting. The initial phase was closed by the DSMB in July 2008. The second phase of this trial consists of establishing the differences in acceptability of HIV testing based on the method of testing offered (rapid oral fluid vs. fingerstick).
A new enzymatic assay was developed by NMD Diagnostics for rapid diagnosis of Enteroviral CNS infection. This study will compare this assay to RT-PCR, by testing human CSF samples taken from children at the ER who are undergoing a spinal tap due to suspicion of meningitis.
