Title: Comparison of HIV incidence estimated in clinical trial and observational cohort settings in a high risk fishing population in Uganda Implications for sample size estimates
Abstract: Clinical trial participants may differ from the source population due to the demands of trial participation and self-selection, inadvertent selection of a lower-risk group, or both. We investigated the HIV risk status of volunteers in a Simulated Vaccine Efficacy Trial (SiVET) nested within a prospective observational cohort of fisher folks in South Western Uganda.
