  Purpose

This is an observational cohort study of virologic and immunologic outcome after at least 48 weeks of third line antiretroviral therapy. Upto 150 children at 8 Thai sites will be enrolled. Third line antiretroviral therapy in this study is defined as an antiretroviral (ARV) regimen in a patient who has failure or intolerance to first line NNRTI-based therapy and second line PI-based therapy. Such regimens may contain new drugs or drug classes such as darunavir, tipranavir, etravirine and raltegravir The knowledge gained from this study will help the Thai government in planning its strategy to provide third line ARV therapy to children within the national program.


Condition
This Study is Designed to Collect Treatment Data of Thai Children on Third Line ARV Therapy.

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Treatment Cohort of HIV-infected Children With Resistance or Intolerance to Non Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor (NNRTI) First Line and PI Second Line Antiretroviral Therapy

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • undetectable viral load [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary endpoint will be the proportions of subjects with HIV RNA below 400 and 50 copies/ml at 48 weeks.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hyperlipidemia [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Number of subjects with hyperlipidemia as a measure of safety


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

Plasma and PBMC


Estimated Enrollment: 150

Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
group 1
Children who are already on third line ARV or are switching to third line ARV may be enrolled in this observational study

Detailed Description:

The primary objective of this study is to assess the virological efficacy, as measured by the proportions of children with HIV RNA below 400 and 50 copies/ml at 48 weeks after initiating third line ARV therapy.

Third line ARV therapy is defined as an ARV regimen in a patient who has failure or intolerance to first line NNRTI-based therapy and second line PI-based therapy. Such regimens may contain new drugs or drug classes such as darunavir, tipranavir, etravirine and raltegravir

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 18 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Thai children aged < 18 years old who are on or are switching to third line antiretroviral therapy

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Children (< 18 years old) with HIV infection may enroll if one of the following criteria is met:

  1. Have resistance to at least one drug in each of the 3 classes (NRTI, NNRTI and PI) and have plasma HIV RNA > 1000 copies/ml prior to switching to third line ARV therapy
  2. Have intolerance to the current NRTI, NNRTI or PI treatment and need to receive darunavir, etravirine, tipranavir or raltegravir

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Have hepatic impairment with ALT ≥ 5 upper limit of normal
  2. Pregnant or breastfeeding
