ABX464 in Fully Controlled HIV Infected Patients Treated With Boosted Protease Inhibitor Treatment
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Multi-center, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Phase IIa Trial to Compare the Safety of ABX464 Given at a Fixed Dose to Placebo in Fully Controlled HIV Infected Patients Treated With Boosted Protease Inhibitor Treatment (Darunavir/Ritonavir or Darunavir/Cobicistat).|
- Frequency of Adverse Reactions graded according to the "Division of AIDS table for grading the severity of adult and pediatric adverse events" (Version 2.0 November 2014) [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ]
- Time to Viral Rebound [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months ]Time To Viral Rebound is defined as the time between treatment stop (i.e. day 29) and viral rebound detection
|Study Start Date:||May 2016|
|Study Completion Date:||June 2017|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Fixed dose of ABX464 50mg once daily given during 28 days in association with darunavir + ritonavir (DRV/RTV) or darunavir + cobicistat (DRV/COBI)
50 mg or 150mg once daily for 28 days
Placebo Comparator: ABX464 Matching placebo
Matching placebo of ABX464 given at 50mg once daily in association with darunavir + ritonavir (DRV/RTV) or darunavir + cobicistat (DRV/COBI)
ABX464 matching placebo
This study is a placebo-controlled study aimed at assessing the safety of ABX464 administered at 50 mg o.d. and 150 mg versus placebo in HIV infected patients who are treated with darunavir + ritonavir (DRV/RTV) or darunavir + cobicistat (DRV/COBI). Eligible patients should be treated with darunavir + ritonavir or darunavir + cobicistat as monotherapy for at least 8 weeks prior to baseline. Patients should be fully suppressed (< 50 copies/mL) at least during the last 6 months prior to enrolment.
Upon screening visit, eligible patients will continue DRV/RTV or DRV/COBI single regimen given respectively at 800 mg of darunavir with 100 mg of ritonavir or 150 mg of cobicistat once a day with food in the morning.
At Day 0, study drug (ABX464 or its matching placebo) will be added on top of this background therapy for the next 28 days. ABX464 or its matching placebo will be given once a day at 50 mg or 150 mg.
At day 29, DRV/RTV or DRV/COBI and ABX464 or its matching placebo (i.e. all treatments) will be stopped. The viral load will be monitored twice a week during the first three weeks and weekly during the next weeks. In case of Viral Rebound (VR; defined below), ART will be resumed.
A 3:1 randomization ratio will be applied meaning that, per treatment block, 3 patients will receive ABX464 on top of DRV/RTV or DRV/COBI and 1 patient will receive placebo on top of DRV/RTV or DRV/COBI.
Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) is defined as a grade 3 or higher adverse event as defined by the "Division of AIDS table for grading the severity of adult and pediatric adverse events" (including signs/symptoms, lab toxicities and/or clinical events) considered by the Data Safety Monitoring Board as probably or definitely related to study treatment.
If more than 2 DLTs occur during the treatment period of the first four treated patients, then the enrolment of additional patients will be stopped. In addition, in case of a life threatening (grade 4) adverse reaction enrolment and treatment of ongoing patients will be immediately discontinued. In both cases, enrolment will only be resumed upon the decision of the sponsor if the Data Safety Monitoring Board can conclude that the causality of the event was unrelated or unlikely related to study treatment.
Thorough pharmacokinetics analysis will be performed to characterize potential drug-drug interactions between ABX464 and DRV/RTV-COBI.
