PEP2 study
The PEP2 study seeks to determine the ability of new anti-HIV agents to be absorbed by different body tissues in HIV-negative men who have sex with men (MSM). This information will be used when considering new agents for post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) in the future. Post-exposure prophylaxis, or PEP, is an intervention that is used to prevent HIV infection up to 72 hours after a potential exposure. HIV-negative people with possible exposure to HIV are instructed to take 28 days of a regimen of anti-HIV medications.

Eligibility: The population being studied for this protocol will be HIV negative MSM aged 18-49 years.

Compensation: You will be compensated $25 for the screening visit, $50 for each blood, swab, and urine collection visit, and $125 for each biopsy visit. A $10 gift card will also be provided for the waiting period when procedures are done on the same day as the study drug. If an extra study visit is needed, participants will be compensated $20 for completion of the visit.
