CNICS captures a broader range of information associated with the rapidly changing course of HIV disease management. It directly reflects outcomes of clinical decisions and management options made daily in the care of HIV infected individuals. It is distinguished by its ability to provide peer-reviewed-open access to a rapidly evolving clinical research platform that collects comprehensive patient data including:
- validated outcomes
- longitudinal resistance data
- detailed Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) with readily available biological specimens
This creates enormous potential for significant contributions to emerging clinical, translational, and social-behavioral research as the HIV epidemic continues to grow and evolve.
As of 2020, CNICS contained 36,084 patients.
