Description

The Studies of Ocular Complications of AIDS (SOCA) Research Group is composed of 19 clinical centers, a Chairman's Office, a Coordinating Center, and a Fundus Photography Reading Center. SOCA is currently engaged in the conduct of the Longitudinal Studies of Ocular Complications of AIDS (LSOCA). The objectives of LSOCA are: 1) to determine the characteristics (clinical, virologic, and immunologic) of and risk factors for CMV retinitis and other ocular ocular complications of AIDS in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART); 2) to monitor trends in the incidence and prevalence of CMV retinitis and other ocular complications of AIDS; and 3) to evaluate the outcomes of CMV retinitis and other ocular complications of AIDS and determine risk factors to adverse outcomes. This study does not enroll patients at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
