Brief Summary:
HIV lipodystrophy affects a significant proportion of patients treated with combination antiretroviral therapy (ART) and is characterized by excess visceral fat accumulation, loss of extremity and subcutaneous fat, in association with dyslipidemia and insulin resistance. Data from the first Phase 3 multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled trial demonstrated that daily administration of 2mg TH9507, a growth hormone releasing factor (GRF), to HIV- infected patients with excess of abdominal fat accumulation for 26 weeks resulted in decreases in visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and trunk fat, with lesser changes in limb fat and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT). The present study is aimed at confirming the observations made during the first Phase 3 study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes From Baseline in Fasting Blood Glucose at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    Blood glucose was determined after an overnight fast. Changes in blood glucose between baseline and Week 52 are reported.

  2. Changes From Baseline in 2 h Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    Glucose tolerance was determined after an overnight fast using standard 75 gram-oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) with glucose measured at timepoints 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120. Changes in glucose tolerance between baseline and Week 52 are reported.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes From Baseline in Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) was assessed by computerized tomography (CT) scan using a single-slice. Changes in VAT between baseline and Week 52 are reported.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Changes From Baseline in Triglycerides at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    Blood lipid levels were determined under fasting conditions. Changes in triglycerides between baseline and Week 52 are reported.

  2. Changes From Baseline in Total Cholesterol/HDL Cholesterol Ratio at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    Blood lipid levels were determined under fasting conditions. Total Cholesterol/HDL Cholesterol Ratio was obtained by dividing the total cholesterol value by the value of the HDL cholesterol. Changes between baseline and Week 52 are reported.
