The study seeks to test injectable PrEP as a way to remedy adherence for many patients on a daily pill regimen.[3]

HPTN 083 is the first large scale phase III clinical trial of cabotegravir.[4]

In February 2016 researchers presented the results of the ECLAIR study.[5] That study examined cabotegravir and found no serious safety concerns.[5]

The research is a collaboration of Gilead Sciences, HIV Prevention Trials Network, ViiV Healthcare, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.[6]

Local study sites will include John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.[7]

On May 18, 2020, HPTN announced that the long-acting injections had been found to be a highly effective treatment.[8]
