Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Sustained Release of Antivirals for Treatment or Prevention of HIV or Treatment of Latent TB/HBV (SRATP)

Grant Source: 

Clinical experience for HIV treatment and prevention has demonstrated that adherence to a drug regimen schedule is a significant factor in the success of the HIV treatment regime and/or prevention strategies. Effective treatment of HIV-infected individuals requires strict adherence to a multi-component regimen of antiretroviral agents taken at least daily for the remainder of a patient’s life. Non-adherence can lead to emergence of drug-resistance and loss of therapeutic effectiveness. Among people living with HIV, morbidity and mortality is increasingly driven by co-infections, such as tuberculosis (TB) and hepatitis B, where the compliance and completion of prolonged multidrug regimens are significant factors in treatment success.

Effective prevention requires that the inhibitor be present at the right time, place, and concentration to stop HIV transmission and acquisition. Although many factors (social, behavioral, and individual preference) can influence adherence, the use of drug delivery systems to provide for a longer therapeutic exposure or window of protection and/or less frequent administration may improve their consistent use, reduce dosing intervals, and potentially improve adherence to the drug regimens.

Development of safe, effective, and well-tolerated sustained release (SR)/long acting (LA) products and strategies that maintain consistent and effective drug levels in plasma and target tissues for longer periods of time is critical for successful treatment and prevention of HIV and HIV-associated co-infections.

Increasing Uptake of Long-Acting Injectable Antiretrovirals Among People with HIV

Grant Source: 

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Increasing Uptake of Long-Acting Injectable Antiretrovirals Among People with HIV cooperative agreement Increasing viral suppression and client retention in care are critical components of meeting the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (2022-2025) and ending the HIV epidemic. In order to reach these goals, it is imperative for HIV care communities to address health care inequities. With the advent of FDA-approved long-acting injectable (LAI) antiretroviral (ARV) medication formulations, initiatives that promote, facilitate, and evaluate the uptake and ongoing utilization of LAI ARV medication may improve clinical outcomes for people with HIV, especially for minority populations who continue to face disparate health care inequities and stigma. This project is designed to develop protocols, implement them and modify as needed, to increase uptake of LAI ARV medications among people of color with HIV, since LAI ARV medications may offer benefits in addressing health inequities and achieving viral suppression.

Health Topics: 

Sustained Release of Antivirals for Treatment or Prevention of HIV (SRATP) (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Grant Source: 

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate the high-risk research needed to develop new and innovative sustained release antiviral strategies for treatment of HIV disease or the prevention of HIV transmission and acquisition. Adherence to dosing regimens is a shared critical issue for both HIV treatment and prevention.

Advancing Sustained/Extended Release for HIV Prevention (A-SER)

Grant Source: 

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate the development of new and innovative sustained/extended release (SER) drug delivery systems (DDS) that can achieve extended durations (months to years) and provide systemic protection from all routes of HIV infection/transmission in at-risk individuals.

Application Deadline: December 4, 2019, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization

Long-acting Drug Delivery Systems for ART Optimization in HIV-1 Infected Children (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Grant Source: 

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to accelerate development of safe and effective long-acting drug delivery systems (LA-DDS) for improved, simplified treatment of HIV-1 in children. This FOA invites applicants engaged in the development of existing LA-DDS platforms at early product development stages to perform specific preclinical activities that enable product optimization and accelerated translation to HIV-1 infected children. Collaborative research partnerships with industry are required.

Application Deadline: March 13, 2019 - 5:00 PM local time of applicant

Accelerating impact of long-acting technologies in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)

Grant Source: 

Safe and efficacious medicines are available for the prevention and treatment of major diseases, but their effectiveness can be compromised by poor treatment completion. Lack of adherence can worsen clinical outcomes, leading to increased mortality, persistent transmission and increased drug resistance in the case of antimicrobials and antivirals. Analyses of treatment and prevention of HIV, malaria, and TB within public health programs show wide disparities in rates of completion, especially among specific populations and regions.

Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
