Impacting The Oral HPV Continuum: Prevention, Screening, And Early Detention

Project: Research project

Project Details


The Northwestern University MACS site will participate in the MOUTH (Men and women Offering Understanding of Throat HPV) study. This will include:
• getting local IRB approval for the project
• administering informed consent to participants
• tracking which participants are targeted for enrollment and when they are due for MOUTH sub-study follow-up
• collecting biological samples (oral rinse, saliva, and urine) from enrolled participants one per year for four years
• collecting MOUTH study survey on participants once per year for four years
• providing participant incentive for study participation
• refer participants for optional oral examination (select visits, per protocol)

In addition, sites will:
• store samples at 4 degrees Celsius and ship every 1-2 weeks to the JHU study biorepository, packaging samples for shipment in compliance with IATA regulations for shipping category B samples.
• use the study Redcap system to track participants’ enrollment and sample collection in the study, and to inform when samples are shipped
