Background: People with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are at a high risk of getting visceral or deep belly fat. Visceral fat can cause health problems like heart or liver disease. Researchers want to see if a blood pressure drug can help by blocking a hormone in the body. Objective: To see if eplerenone reduces fat stored in the heart muscle and liver in people with HIV and increased visceral fat. Eligibility: Adults ages 18 75 with HIV and increased waist circumference. Increased waist circumference is defined as more than 40 inches in men and more than 35 inches in women. Design: Participants will be screened with: Physical exam Medical history Blood tests Measurements of hips, waist, legs, arms, shoulders, and neck Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. They will lie on a table that slides into a machine. Electrocardiogram (EKG) to measure heart electrical activity Transient elastography, a special ultrasound to measure liver tissue stiffness A small piece their liver collected (optional) Participants will have a baseline visit: Physical exam Medical history Blood tests DEXA scan to measure body fat, muscle mass, and bone density. Participants will lie on a table while a very small dose of x-rays goes through the body. Resting energy expenditure (REE). This measures the amount of oxygen breathed in and carbon dioxide breathed out. Participants will get a 1-week supply of eplerenone. They will take one pill per day. Participants will have a follow-up visit 1 week later. They will have: Physical exam Medical history Blood tests 23-week supply of eplerenone Participants will have 5 more follow-up visits. Participants will have a final study visit, repeating many of the screening and baseline tests.
The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of multiple doses of BMS-955176 on the QT interval corrected with Fridericia's method (QTcF) in healthy subjects.
The purpose of this study is to find at least one dose of BMS-955176 that will be safe, effective and tolerable for HIV-1 infected treatment naive adults.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the combination of BMS-955176 with atazanavir (ATV) [with or without ritonavir (RTV)] and dolutegravir (DTG) is efficacious, safe, and well-tolerated in HIV-1 infected treatment experienced adults.
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of portable colposcopy when compared to conventional colposcopy (25x magnification of the cervix, the gold standard) and Visualization Inspection with Acetic acid (VIA, with 1x magnification, the accepted low-resource method). Half the participants will be evaluated for cervical pathology by portable colposcopy after VIA assessment, while the other half will be evaluated by conventional colposcopy. This study also will use collected lab specimens for human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive women to determine those HPV genotypes most prevalent among higher grade disease cases (CIN II+) and among the sub-group of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive women.
The proposed study, 200207 is a double blind, placebo controlled, single and repeat dose escalation study to investigate the safety, tolerability and PK of GSK2838232 alone and when co-administered with RTV 100 milligram (mg) Once daily (QD). This study will enable future clinical development of GSK2838232 in healthy subjects and in a Phase IIa proof of concept study in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infected patients. This study is a single and repeat dose escalation study and will be conducted as two Parts. Part A will evaluate GSK2838232 20 mg and 50 mg administered QD for 8 days and Part B will evaluate GSK2838232 10 mg, 20 mg, and 50 mg, co-administered with RTV 100 mg, QD for 11 days. The extended period of dosing is to account for the longer terminal phase half-life of GSK2838232 when given with RTV. Dose cohorts will be enrolled sequentially; enrollment into a cohort will commence following review of interim PK and safety data from at least 4 subjects in the preceding cohort. Subjects in both parts will have a screening visit within 30 days prior to first dose and a follow-up visit 7-14 days after the last dose. Maximum duration of study participation will be approximately 7 weeks. Approximately 40 healthy subjects will be enrolled, 8 subjects/cohort. Subjects will be randomized 3:1 to receive GSK2838232 or placebo.
This study investigates the safety, tolerability and PKs of GSK2838232 with and without Ritonavir, and to evaluate different formulations of GSK2838232 in healthy subjects. This study will evaluate higher single and RTV boosted doses to support continued clinical development of GSK2838232 at clinically relevant doses, and subsequently in those infected with HIV in a dose ranging phase 2 study. The study is conducted in 2 parts: Part A and Part B, study Part A and Part B may be conducted in parallel. Approximately 20 healthy subjects will be enrolled into the study, 8 in Part A and 12 in Part B. Part A is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, 4-period, single dose escalation design. Subjects will be randomized 3:1 to receive GSK2838232 or placebo. Subjects randomized to placebo will receive placebo in all four periods. Following completion of Period 2 PK assessments at 96hr post-dose, subjects will begin daily dosing of RTV 100mg for a total of 26 days. Part B is a randomized, open-label, unbalanced, 3-period, cross-over design; subjects will be randomized 1:1 to each sequence. The relative bioavailability of single 100mg doses of powder in a bottle (PIB) active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) of GSK2838232 versus PIB spray-dried dispersion (SDD) will be assessed. A single dose of GSK2838232 will co-administered on the 10th day of RTV dosing; RTV dosing will continue for an additional 4 days (total of 14 days). Subjects will have a screening visit within 30 days prior to first dose and a follow-up visit 7-14 days after the last dose.
Objectives of the study were to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two different doses of tipranavir (TPV) in combination with ritonavir (TPV/r) compared with a standard dual PI combination of saquinavir (SQV) and ritonavir (RTV) and to evaluate the dose response of two different doses of TPV in combination with RTV for efficacy and safety.
To determine the effect of steady-state tipranavir 500 mg/ritonavir 200 mg (TPV/r) on intracellular concentrations of zidovudine triphosphate (ZDV-TP) and carbovir triphosphate (CBV-TP) and plasma viral load
The objectives of this study are to determine the effects of nevirapine on the steady-state pharmacokinetics of saquinavir-sgc and to determine the effects of saquinavir-sgc on the steady-state pharmacokinetics of nevirapine. This study will also evaluate the pharmacokinetics of nevirapine in combination with saquinavir-sgc compared to historical controls treated with nevirapine but without saquinavir-sgc.
