Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of viral rebound at 12 weeks after interruption of antiretroviral therapy [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Viral rebound is defined as confirmed plasma HIV-1 RNA level > 200 copies/ml in two separate occasions


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Serum level of 3BNC117 at the time of viral rebound, measured in micrograms per ml [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • Time to viral rebound after interruption of antiretroviral therapy [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Viral rebound is defined as confirmed plasma HIV-1 RNA level > 200 copies/ml in two separate occasions

  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]

Enrollment: 17
Study Start Date: October 2015
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2018
Primary Completion Date: October 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 3BNC117 + ART Interruption
Four intravenous infusions of 3BNC117 (30mg/kg) at weeks 0, 12, 24 and 27, and antiretroviral treatment interruption (ART)at week 24.
Drug: 3BNC117
3BNC117 infusions
Other Name: 3BNC117 antibody
Other: Antiretroviral Treatment Interruption
Antiretroviral therapy will be discontinued 2 days after the third 3BNC117 infusion, at week 24, and resumed at week 36.
Other Name: Treatment Interruption

Detailed Description:

The proposed study is a Phase II, open label study to evaluate the safety, antiretroviral activity and pharmacokinetics of four infusions of 3BNC117 in HIV-infected individuals on combination ART and during a brief analytical treatment interruption (ATI).

Study participants will be administered four intravenous infusions of 3BNC117, administered at 30 mg/kg on day 0, week 12, week 24 and week 27. Antiretroviral therapy will be discontinued 2 days after the third 3BNC117 infusion (week 24), until week 36.

The ART regimen will be resumed at week 36 or sooner if plasma HIV-1 RNA level is ≥ 200 copies/ml, CD4+ T cell count drops < 350 cells/microliter, and results are confirmed upon repeat measurement during the next weekly scheduled visit. If plasma HIV-1 RNA level is ≥ 1,000 copies/ml, the participant will be asked to return for a repeat measurement prior to the next scheduled visit, and ART will be resumed if results are confirmed. ART will also be resumed early if the participant becomes pregnant or if otherwise clinically indicated. If ART is resumed before week 27, the fourth 3BNC117 infusion will not be administered.

Participants will be followed weekly during the analytical treatment interruption phase for safety assessments and for monitoring plasma HIV-1 RNA levels. CD4+ T cell counts will be monitored every 2 weeks during the analytical treatment interruption phase.

Participants may remain off antiretroviral therapy after week 36, with weekly viral load monitoring, if viral rebound does not occur by week 36.

All participants will be followed for a total of 60 weeks from enrollment.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Female study participants of reproductive potential are defined as pre-menopausal women who have not had a sterilization procedure (e.g. hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, tubal ligation or salpingectomy). Women are considered menopausal if they have not had a menses for at least 12 months and have a FSH of greater than 40 IU/L or if FSH testing is not available, they have had amenorrhea for 24 consecutive months.
  • Acceptable forms of contraception must include one of the following: condoms (male or female) with or without a spermicidal agent, diaphragm or cervical cap with spermicide, IUD, or hormone-based contraceptive.
  • If on an NNRTI-based regimen willing to a switch for 4 weeks to a dolutegravir-based regimen.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Have a history of AIDS-defining illness within 1 year prior to enrollment.
  • Have a history of resistance to two or more antiretroviral drug classes.

  • Participant report, or chart history, of significant coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary intervention with placement of cardiac stents.
  • Participant report, or chart history, of diabetes type 1 or 2 and/or current use of insulin or oral hypoglycemic medications.
  • Uncontrolled hypertension, as defined by a systolic blood pressure > 180 and/or diastolic blood pressure > 120, in the presence or absence of anti-hypertensive medications.
  • Total cholesterol level > 240 mg/dl or LDL level > 190 mg/dl at screen.
  • Known family history of myocardial infarction or stroke in a first-degree relative aged < 60 years.
