TOPIC: Efficacy of Doxycycline in Post-exposure Prophylaxis of Bacterial Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) - Clinical Trial
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: DoxyPEP is a randomized open label clinical trial to determine if taking an antibiotic called Doxycycline after sex (i.e. post-exposure prophylaxis or PEP) prevents bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs) - specifically syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea- among men who have sex with men and transgender women living with HIV or on PrEP. The study was conducted in 4 clinical sites in San Francisco and Seattle. The control arm was stopped in May 2022 after the study met prespecified efficacy thresholds. The study design and findings will be summarized.
