As the scope of research conducted through the ACTG and other HIV research networks expands to include international research centers, the enrollment of subjects for clinical trials and the regional use of traditional medicines will become an important factor in the design and conduct of these studies. The pharmacologic characteristics of traditional medicines as well as emerging clinical data will be important for protocol design and the conduct of research studies in multiple geographic regions. The drug interactions database will be expanding to facilitate new access to new data for clinical investigators.
