Safety and Efficacy of (α1Proteinase Inhibitor, α1PI) in HIV Disease
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01731691|
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Potential non compliance with Protocol.)
First Posted : November 22, 2012
Last Update Posted : December 23, 2014
Our primary objective is to further characterize the mechanism by which alpha-1PI regulates CD4 counts.
HIV-1 infected patients will be initiated on PROLASTIN®-C (Alpha-1 Proteinase Inhibitor [Human], Grifols Biotherapeutics Inc.) or placebo. Uninfected volunteers will be untreated and will be monitored for comparison.

|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||12 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Masking:||Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)|
|Primary Purpose:||Basic Science|
|Official Title:||Safety and Efficacy of Prolastin®-C (α1Proteinase Inhibitor, α1PI) in Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Infected Subjects|
|Study Start Date :||April 2012|
|Primary Completion Date :||July 2014|
|Study Completion Date :||July 2014|
Experimental: α1 Proteinase Inhibitor in HIV disease
α1Proteinase Inhibitor (120mg/kg Prolastin-C) weekly for 8 weeks
Biological: α1 Proteinase Inhibitor
Prolastin-C treatment in HIV disease will be compared with placebo treatment in HIV disease and no treatment in uninfected volunteers.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo in HIV disease
Placebo (saline) weekly for 8 weeks
No Intervention: Uninfected controls
Blood collection only for 8 weeks
- CD4 counts [ Time Frame: 9 weeks after initiation of treatment ]It has been observed that CD4 counts and cholesterol levels are correlated and that there is cyclic variation in individuals with and without HIV.
- cholesterol levels [ Time Frame: 9 weeks after initiation of treatment ]CD4 T cells transport lipoproteins through blood and lymph and are correlated with cholesterol levels. Regulation of CD4 counts includes regulation of cholesterol levels.
