A Phase 4 Comparative Trial of Benzathine Penicillin G 2.4 Million Units Administered as a Single Dose versus Three Successive Weekly Doses for Treatment of Early Syphilis in Subjects with or without HIV Infection

Study Overview

The purposes of this study are to compare the effect of 1 dose of Benzathine Penicillin G (BPG) to 3 weekly doses of BPG in all subjects; and to determine whether the effects of 1 dose of BPG or 3 weekly doses of BPG are different in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected subjects.

Study Description

Adults 18 years of age and older are needed for a study assessing syphilis treatment. This study is being conducted by Dr. Teresa Batteiger at Indiana University School of Medicine. The study takes place in the Bell Flower Clinic of the Fifth Third Office Building, next to Eskenazi Hospital.

This study will compare the effect of one dose to three doses (one dose a week for three weeks in a row) of medication normally given for treatment of Syphilis in individuals with or without HIV infection.
