  1. Sexual activity among HIV-seropositive gay men seeking treatment for depression.

    Article - En anglais


    With no cure or vaccine for AIDS expected in the near future, researchers have tried to locate predictors of high-risk sexual activity and develop interventions that emphasize primary prevention and encouragement of safe sex.

    This study examines the roles of depression, feelings of hopelessness, relationship status, and illness stage in mediating sexual activity among 85 HIV-seropositive (HIV+) gay men seeking psychiatric treatment for clinical depression.


    Subjects were participants in a randomized, double-blind, placebo trial of imipramine.

    A self-report was used to assess sexual activity during the month prior to each assessment.
