HIV / AIDs Treatment Studies

Bringing Together Care and Research for Better, Safer, and More Effective Treatments

HIV research studies are essential to provide critical information to help people live longer, healthier, and more comfortable lives.

Our mission has been to develop and provide the highest-quality treatment and care for people living with HIV through research.

We are part of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The ACTG, the largest HIV clinical-trials organization, plays a major role in defining the standards of care for treatment of HIV infection and opportunistic diseases related to HIV/AIDS around the world.

Treatment Experienced

The following studies are for people who are treatment experienced, meaning that they are currently on medications or have taken medications in the past for HIV. Each study has a unique approach: Which are the best medications to treat with? When is the best time to change medications? How do we know when to change medications?

 

Study Number POEM
Study Name This is a study of the long-term follow-up of participants starting Maraviroc containing regimen.

Who Is Eligible

Males and non-pregnant non-breastfeeding females, age 18 or older

Eligible to start a Maraviroc containing regimen

Study Number A5241
Study Name

The Optimized Treatment that Includes or Omits NRTIs (OPTIONS) Trial: A Randomized Strategy Study for HIV-1-infected Treatment-Experienced Subjects Using the cPSS to Select an Effective Regimen

Description

This is a strategy study for triple-class antiretroviral-experienced or resistant HIV-1 infected subjects that will evaluate the benefit of adding nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) to a new antiretroviral regimen. A continuous phenotype susceptibility score (cPSS) will be calculated based upon a real-time HIV-1 phenotype/genotype and co-receptor tropism assays to help in selecting a potent salvage regimen. Subjects for whom a study regimen with a cPSS>2.0 can be identified will be randomized to receive a new regimen with or without NRTIs. The study team will recommend options for a new regimen, which may include raltegravir, maraviroc, enfuvirtide, darunavir, tipranavir, or etravirine. The site investigator and subject will choose from the recommended options.

Who Is Eligible
  • HIV-1 infected individuals ages 16 and older
  • HIV-1 RNA>1000 on a protease inhibitor-containing regimen
  • Triple-class experience or resistance and no prior exposure to integrase inhibitor

Hepatitis

People with HIV may also be infected with other viruses, such as Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C. There are trials for the treatment of co-infected patients.
