Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of nevirapine based HAART 400 mg/day versus 600 mg/day on HIV-1 load as measured by HIV-1 RNA quantification in plasma [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of nevirapine based HAART 400 mg/day versus 600 mg/day [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Nevirapine level at week 2, 4 and 12 and 12 hour PK at week 4 (only 20 patients) [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Immune recovery syndrome, adherence, clinical improvement, incidence of new/recurrent AIDS events (CDC class C) between two group [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Time to mortality or new/recurrent AIDS events (CDC class C), 1 year mortality rate of TB/HIV patients, emerging of ARV resistant especially nevirapine, emerging of anti-TB resistance [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
NVP 400 mg
Drug: HAART containing nevirapine
Initially NVP 200 mg BID (400 mg per day) was compared to 400 mg BID and 200 mg OD NVP (600 mg per day). 400 mg/day versus 600 mg/day.
Active Comparator: 2
NVP 600 mg
Drug: HAART containing nevirapine
Initially NVP 200 mg BID (400 mg per day) was compared to 400 mg BID and 200 mg OD NVP (600 mg per day). 400 mg/day versus 600 mg/day.

Detailed Description:

Preliminary data from the HIVNAT PK laboratory indicate that out of 5/60 patients treated with nevirapine (200 mg bid) and rifampicin had sub-therapeutic nevirapine levels (<3.0 mg mg/L). In a control group of 38 patients using nevirapine without rifampicin there were no sub-therapeutic levels. A dose increase of nevirapine while patients who are receiving that rifampicin may be required. Both nevirapine and rifampicin are tepatotoxic agents as are other agents used in treatment of HIV or tuberculosis. Using a higher nevirapine may prevent the occurrence of sub-therapeutic nevirapine levels, but may also induce more liver toxicity. To address these issues, we designed a randomized prospective study to evaluate the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of nevirapine 400 mg/day versus 600 mg/day with a two weeks lead-in 200 mg/day and 400 mg/day respectively, in TB-HIV co-infected patients who taking rifampicin and short-term efficacy and toxicity.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

  5. TB is diagnosed and using treatment with rifampin base therapy for at least 2 weeks but no longer than 4 weeks duration. The requirement for study entry is at least one acid-fast bacillus (AFB) positive smear with a typical syndrome and/or CXR findings consistent with pulmonary TB. Pulmonary TB and / or extra pulmonary TB will be included if AFB or culture for TB is positive.
  6. No other active OI (CDC class C event)
  7. Negative pregnancy test in females, and willing to use reliable contraception
  8. Able to provide written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. The following laboratory variables, i. absolute neutrophil count (ANC) < 1000 cells/uL ii. hemoglobin < 6.5 g/dL iii. platelet count < 50,000 cells/uL iv. serum AST, ALT > 5 x ULN vi. serum bilirubin > 2 x ULN vii. serum creatinine > 2 x ULN viii. Pregnant or nursing mothers.
  2. Current use of steroid and other immunosuppressive agents.
  3. Current use of any prohibited medications related to compliance and drug pharmacokinetics (see appendix )
  4. Acute therapy for serious infection or other serious medical illness (in the judgment of the site Principal Investigator) requiring systemic treatment and/or hospitalization.
  5. Patients with current alcohol or illicit substance use that in the opinion of the site Principal Investigator would conflict with any aspect of the conduct of the trial.
  6. The persons who had been received a mono-therapy of nevirapine
  7. Unlikely to be able to remain in follow-up for the protocol defined period.
