Brief Summary:
To determine, in HIV-infected patients, the efficacy of filgrastim ( recombinant-methionyl human granulocyte-colony stimulating factor; G-CSF ) in preventing grade 4 neutropenia, i.e., absolute neutrophil count (ANC) < 500 cells/mm3.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Cytopenias Drug: Filgrastim Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients are randomized to receive subcutaneous G-CSF at one of two different doses or no G-CSF (observation) for 24 weeks. Patients who experience ANC < 500 cells/mm3 on two consecutive occasions at least 24 hours apart prior to completing the 24-week study period will be considered to have reached the primary study endpoint; those in the observation group who reach the primary endpoint prior to week 24 may begin receiving G-CSF for the remainder of the study period. After 24 weeks, patients may continue G-CSF on a compassionate basis at the investigator's discretion.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

Concurrent Medication:

Allowed:

  • Life expectancy of at least 6 months.

NOTE:

  • Stable Kaposi's sarcoma is permitted provided patient does not require myelosuppressive therapy (other than interferon) within 4 weeks prior to study entry.

Prior Medication:

Allowed:

  • Prior antiretroviral agents (e.g., AZT, ganciclovir, ddI, ddC), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim), interferon, and amphotericin B.

Exclusion Criteria

Co-existing Condition:

Patients with the following symptoms or conditions are excluded:

  • Malignancy other than Kaposi's sarcoma and localized basal or squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Psychiatric, addictive, or other disorder that compromises ability to give informed consent.
