Women volunteers needed for important clinical trial
The HYMS Experimental Medicine Unit (EMU) at York Hospital is taking part in a crucial medical trial that could potentially save millions of women from contracting HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Phase 1 clinical trial, which is funded by the Wellcome Trust and known as MUCOVAC2, will run for up to a year and will enrol 36 healthy, HIV-negative women aged 18-45 years at HYMS Experimental Medicine Unit which is based in the hospital and St George's University of London .
The trial is being carried out to assess a new vaccine which targets Sub-Saharan Africa's most most common HIV strain.
Volunteers can be paid up to £1000 to cover time and expenses.
