[Series 4] Research Files. — 1983-1988
Scope and Content Element: The bulk of the research files contain records related to Polk’s research in the areas of Gynecology and Obstetrics and AIDS, with the latter being the largest grouping. In addition, several files pertain to other research interests of Polk including coronary heart disease, cancer, hepatitis, and vaccination. The subject files include documents pertaining to transmission, research, and treatment of gynecological and AIDS-related medical disorders. Materials include correspondence, photocopied journal articles, hand written notes, research studies, human subjects forms, research questionnaires, conference programs, lecture materials, papers reviewed by Polk, abstracts, progress reports, grant applications and research proposals for studies by Polk. Interspersed among the subject files are files about faculty and administrators at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere. This series also contains files pertaining to the Joint Committee on Clinical Investigation (JCCI), which was in charge of human subjects review at Johns Hopkins University. JCCI files include procedures updates, research project notification and consent forms for studies for which Polk was the investigator, as well as one annual renewal request for a study for which Polk was a reviewer. GRID, Gay Related Immune Deficiency was an early name for AIDS.
The titles of research projects on forms listing Polk as the principle investigator include: A Case-Control Study of Endometriosis; Cervicitis During Pregnancy Study; Comparative Immunogenicity and Safety of Human Plasma Vaccine vs. Recombinant DNA Vaccine for Hepatitis B in Homosexual Men; Dietary Markers for Epidemiologic Studies of Cancer; Evaluation of HTLV-III Antibody Test; Evaluation of a New Antibody Assay for HTLV-III; Genital Infections and Perinatal Outcomes; Levels of Cefazolin and Deforanide in Pelvic Tissues Over Time; Microbiologic Studies in Women Undergoing Elective Hysterectomy; Multiple Dose, Open-Label Clinical Trial to Determine the Tolerance & Preliminary Efficacy of PHA-23 for Patients with the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS); The Natural History of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) in Homosexual Men; Preventing Chlamydial Infection in Children and Infants; Retinopathy of the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome; Risk Factors for Hospital Acquired Surgical Wound Infection after Cardiac Surgery; Risk Factors in the Occurrence of Juvenile-onset Laryngeal Papilloma; The Risk of Adverse Pregnancy Outcome Following Cervicitis During Pregnancy; The Risk of HIV Transmission by Screened Blood; Rubella Vaccine Study; Survey of Use of Prophylactic Antibiotics for Elective Hysterectomy.
Research files contain three sub-series, starting with Gynecology and Obstetrics, then AIDS, and thirdly other research interests. The first two sub-series each contain a set of subject files and a set of research studies records. Files within sections are organized in alphabetical order by folder title.

[Sub-series 4.1] Gynecology and Obstetrics Files. — 1983-1988

[Sub-series 4.2] AIDS Files. — 1983-1988

In 1986 the first AIDS Treatment and Evaluation Units (ATEU) were established by the National Institutes of Health to examine treatment options for HIV infection. Johns Hopkins was one of 19 centers approved by the NIH as a federally funded ATEU. The research was focused on new treatments that prevented HIV from replicating. The unit was set up to test experimental drugs on AIDS patients. The Principal Investigator of the Johns Hopkins ATEU was John Bartlett, Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases. Data from ATEU studies was gathered and analyzed by the AIDS Clinical Trials Coordinating Center to facilitate collaborative studies and speed up the evaluation of drugs.

The AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) was established in 1987 and funded by the Department of Health and Human Services. The objective was to broaden the scope of the AIDS research of the NIAID. It established the largest network of clinical investigators and clinical trials units in the world. The mission was to investigate the viral and immune pathogenesis of HIV infections and its complications; to evaluate approaches and strategies for treatment; and promote the publication and dissemination of study findings.

In 1983, Frank Polk, Epidemiologist, designed a study to follow the natural history of AIDS among gay and bisexual men. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) within the National Institutes of Health funded Polk’s project as part of a collaborative study known as the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS). Polk was the principle investigator and an advisory board member of SHARE, the Study to Help the AIDS Research Effort, the name of the Baltimore center of MACS. Starting in 1983, collaboration began among the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health, the City of Baltimore, the State of Maryland, local gay organizations, and the University of Maryland. Study participants were seen at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Moore Clinic on four evenings a week and on one weekend day. They were given medical evaluations at three to six month intervals.

Polk recruited a lawyer who was a lobbyist and gay rights activist to lead the SHARE Advisory Board and to select Board members, which helped to reach men in the gay community, learn about their concerns and political issues, and obtain their confidence. It was important to ascertain that the investigators were not evaluating homosexuality per se. Another concern was that the researchers would guarantee confidentiality to volunteers who feared being stigmatized. In 1987, the Johns Hopkins University Department of Epidemiology, within the School of Hygiene and Public Health, was awarded a contract to be the Center for the Analysis and Management of the MACS study data (CAMACS). MACS is a longitudinal study and is still ongoing. The three other centers are located in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

Files cover every aspect of the MACS study including SHARE Advisory Board records (minutes, notes, correspondence, and directories); committee meeting records, including the Steering Committee; proposals (technical and business); research study protocols; forms and form letters; Human Subjects guidelines; study related papers; abstracts for conferences and journal articles; MACS studies of AIDS related conditions; budget information; questionnaires; laboratory records; reports (annual reports, progress reports, final report); materials about the Chicago and Los Angeles sites; computer equipment; statistics; and information for the media.
Noteworthy collection documents include a description of CAMACS and how study data would be managed (See CAMACS file); a paper titled “MACS: Rationale, Organization, and selected characteristics of the participants” (see Data Abstracts and Publications file); Final Report “The Natural History of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) in Homosexual Men,” September 29, 1987 (See Reports); and the October 1983 SHARE Advisory Board minutes that contain notes on the rationale for the study, the advantage of having a cohort study, interest in addressing psychological stress and depression, concerns over possible weaknesses in the study, how to address Gay issues that researchers were unfamiliar with, facilitating discussion about gay social and political issues, issues pertaining to methodology, the study’s relationship with the press, and Johns Hopkins personnel policies concerning gay employees.
MACS-related studies include: Diarrhea Study; Evaluation of Delayed Hypersensitivity to Skin Testing Among Gay Men; Evaluation of a new Antibody Assay for HTLV-III; and Neuropsychological Studies (Neurologic and Psychiatric Manifestation of the HTLV-III Infection or Neoropsych Study).
The MACS/SHARE Study records includes a set of subject files and a set of correspondence files. Subject files are arranged in alphabetical order by folder title.

[Sub-sub-sub-sub-series 4.2.2.1.1] Corresondence Files. — 1983-1988. — folders
Polk’s research correspondence includes letters from the Dean of the School of Public Health, D. A. Henderson; the President of Johns Hopkins University, Steven Muller; Director of the AIDS Clinical Unit at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, John Bartlett; the Mayor of Baltimore, William Donald Schaefer; as well as letters to the U.
