City Streets is at 5078 Richmond Emergency Assistance Program The People With AIDS Coalition of Houston (PWACH) has added its fourth major program with Ihe addition of a grant of over $100,000 from harris County. Called Direct Emergency Assistance, the program is funded by Ryan White Title 1 federal funds. Through this program, eligible clients of the Coalition may receive up to $500 on a onetime basis for emergency needs such as rent, or one-way travel to move from the area. This is the first year thai the Coalition has applied for the grant, which has been previously divided among three other agencies. The Ryan White Planning Council voted to consolidate the program at one agency in order to be more client friendly, and to eliminate the difficulties of applying at more than one place for assist ance. Says Executive Board President Ray West. "We are especially proud to have been entrusted as the sole manager of these desperately needed funds from Harris County officials. The addition of Ihis program brings us one step closei m meeting all of the challenging and changing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS." The People With AIDS Coalition of Houston operates out of an accessible by puhlic or private transportation storefront at 3400 Montrose Blvd. #106. The building offers free parking. The PWACH was founded in 1986 as an organization of, by, and for people infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. Three quarters of the Coalition's volunteers are people living with HIV/AIDS. It is a 501(c)(3) organization. NIH Drug Study Stopped Doesn't Control AIDS- Related Eye Disease Researchers have stopped patient enrollment and treatmeni in a study designed to evaluate the safely and effectiveness of a new drug to treat a blinding eye infection common in people with AIDS. The drug. MSL 109 (Protovir'). did not slow the progression of CMV retinitis, the eye infection, in a clinical trial sponsored by the National Eye Institute (NEI) of the National Institutes of Health At the lime the study was slopped, 209 of the 325 patienis planned for the study had been treated. Of those, approximately 40% were newly diagnosed with CMV retinitis and 60% had previously been diagnosed with, and treated for, the disease. The patients were randomized to receive either MSL 109 or a placebo. The investigators decided to terminate enrollment and treatment following the recommendation of an independent daia and safety monitoring board. The recommendation was based on the lack of evidence of efficiency of MSL 109 for the treatment of CMV retinitis. The median time to progression of disease was 65 days in the group treated with MSL 109 and 66 days in lhe group taking the pla cebo. In addition, study results suggest that patients with recurrent CMV rt-tmiiis who were laking the new drug had a higher mortality rate than similar patients taking a placebo. However, the meaning of this mortality difference was unclear because among this same group of study patients there was a lower than expected mortality rate in those given the placebo. The mortality difference was not observed in patients with newly-diagnosed CMV retinitis. ■"These results highlight the importance of conducting clinical trials to evaluate new therapies," said Dr. Carl Kupfer, National Eye Institute director. Up to 40 percent of people with AIDS develop CMV retinitis, which is caused by an organism called cytomegalovirus (CMV). Untreated, the disease destroys the retina, the light-sensing tissue that lines the back of the eye and is crucial for vision. People with AIDS are among those most vulnerable to CMV, because their weakened immune systems are unable to resist potentially harmful organisms. Mosi people have been exposed to CMV, hui their healthy immune systems do not allow infections to develop.
