The purpose of this study is to see whether acupressure (acupuncture using pressure applied
by the hands instead of needles) can help nausea and vomiting in persons with HIV/AIDS.
This is a Phase I trial (a study to evaluate effectiveness in a small number of patients).
Patients will get 4 acupressure treatments and will wear acupressure wristbands for 1 week.
Patients will write down all drugs they take and will make a note of when they get nausea
and vomiting. They also will give written answers to different questions. No drugs will be
given as part of this study. Patients will be paid for participating.
- Are HIV-positive.
- Have nausea and/or vomiting an average of 2 times per day for at least 1 week.
