Notices to Readers AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service

The AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service (ACTIS) provides current information on federally and privately sponsored clinical trials being conducted to evaluate drugs and therapies to treat all stages of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in adults and children and to treat related opportunistic infections. ACTIS is a Public Health Service project provided collaboratively by CDC, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

The ACTIS database includes information on more than 300 clinical trials and more than 100 drugs being tested. Information is available on the purpose of the study protocol, the location, the eligibility requirements, the exclusion criteria, and the names and telephone numbers of contact persons. ACTIS provides information on all AIDS clinical trials sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and on studies of all treatments undergoing clinical testing for effectiveness in privately sponsored trials approved by FDA.

ACTIS is a resource for health professionals and for HIV- infected persons and their families. All calls are completely confidential. Health specialists provide information to callers over the telephone and can, on request, send callers a printout of a customized search of the clinical trials database. A bilingual health specialist is available for Spanish-speaking callers. ACTIS information can also be accessed through two online databases, AIDSTRIALS and AIDSDRUG, available through NLM.

ACTIS can be reached by calling (800) 874-2572 ([800] TRIALS-A); fax: (301) 738-6616; TTY/TDD: (800) 243-7012; international line: (301) 217-0023. ACTIS is operated by CDC's National AIDS Clearinghouse.
