This is a placebo-controlled study, conducted at US sites to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effectiveness of the study drug letermovir in adults with HIV and asymptomatic cytomegalovirus (CMV) who are on antiretroviral therapy (ART)-mediated suppression. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either letermovir or placebo, once daily, for 48 weeks, followed by 12 weeks of observation on ART alone.
The study will evaluate the use and preliminary impact of an mHealth app for improving sexual health outcome measures among male couples by assessing whether exposure and use of the app results in improvements in participants and couples' self-reported sexual health and prevention behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes. The study will enroll both men of the couple into a randomized controlled trial. Participants/couples randomized to the intervention will have access to the app for two months while those assigned to the waitlist group will receive and have access to the app for one month. Participants will complete surveys at baseline and at month 2.
The proposed project seeks to develop and test an intervention to improve engagement in HIV and mental health care for young Black gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (YB-GBMSM) in Ryan White clinics.
An open-label, pilot study of switching patients to Dovato who are currently taking Bitarvy who are virological suppressed (HIV-1 < 50 copies/mL
This is a phase 2 study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of combination therapy with Albuvirtide (ABT) and 3BNC117 in virologically suppressed subjects with HIV-1 infection and explore the potential of viral suppression and viral reservoir clearance after analytical treatment interruption (ATI).
In a prospective multi-center observational study, 200 HIV-infected patients treated with antiretroviral treatment (ART) and who suffered from coronary artery disease (CAD) will be enrolled. Blood samples for biological parameters will be collected with all participants: lipid profile and markers of systemic inflammation specific for HIV-infection (lipopolysaccharide-binding protein; cytokines: IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, TNF -α, INF-γ, INF-α; procalcitonin; inflammatory hsCRP). All of them will undergo functional testing (Echo, CMR both at rest and stress if necessary) and invasive imaging with QCA, FFR, QFR, OCT, IVUS, VH-IVUS, NIRS. Patients will be treated according to the current and previous recommendations. Both medical treatment and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) with or without stenting will be done. Collected data will be analyzed: correlation between ART, blood test results, coronary angiography results, including performed PTCA, history of myocardial infarctions, and other cardiovascular events. The follow-up period will achieve 12 months prospectively with collected clinical events and imaging outcomes which will be determined at the baseline and 12-month follow-up. The independent ethics expertise will be provided by the Central Clinical Hospital of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Russia). The monitoring of the clinical data with imaging will be provided by The Ethics Board of Central Clinical Hospital of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a 2 drugs ART regimen (lamivudine plus dolutegravir) for prevention of mother to child transmission in pregnant women with HIV. 20 pregnant women will be enrolled in this proof of concept protocol. They will be prescribed DTG-3TC (fixed-dose combination), and will be followed up to the end of gestation. Initially, a total of 10 pregnant women will be recruited for the first phase of the study. Once the first phase is successfully completed, 10 additional participants will be included in a second step.
N-803 has demonstrated ability to reactivate HIV from latency and can activate T cells and NK cells to clear those cells, thus reducing the reservoir. However, a concern is that CD8 T cells may be excluded from the B cell follicles, where a significant part of the reservoir resides. Webb, et al, has shown that in SIV infected monkeys CD8 T cells in follicles increase in frequency when N-803 is administered. We hypothesize that in HIV infected humans treated with N-803 that CD8 T cells will increase in B cell follicles and that there will be a further reduction in the frequency of cells with an inducible provirus.
The overall goal of this pilot study is to evaluate the feasibility of the Lumme smartphone app for smoking cessation in people living with HIV (PLWH) and evaluate its effect on smoking cessation. Mobile health (mHealth) technology can be used for achieving health equity in vulnerable groups because it is a widely available and relatively inexpensive tool for health behavior change and can be adapted to meet the needs of its end-users. Therefore, a mHealth intervention such as the Lumme App proposed through this study is timely, relevant, scalable and likely to improve health outcomes in PLWH who smoke.
This randomized controlled trial will assess the feasibility, acceptability and impact of the provision of multiple oral-fluid based HIV self-test kits to HIV-negative adolescents aged 15-19 years to promote HIV testing among their sexual partners and couples testing.
