Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Safety Profile as Assessed by Percentage of Participants Experiencing Treatment-Emergent Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) and all Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events. [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks plus 30 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Virology: Changes in Plasma HIV-1 RNA and Cell Associated Viral RNA (CAVR) During the Dosing Period [ Time Frame: Up to 20 weeks ]
  • Virology: Changes in Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cell (PBMC) HIV-1 Reservoir Between Baseline and Following Vesatolimod Dosing [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Virology: Changes in Total CD4+ T Cell Reservoirs [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Virology: Time to Virologic Rebound and Plasma Viral Load Set-Point Following ATI [ Time Frame: Up to 25 weeks ]
  • Virology: Peak HIV-1 Viral Load During Period 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 25 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in Serum/Plasma Cytokines [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in Plasma Kynurenine/ Tryptophan (K/T) [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in mRNA of Interferon-Stimulated Genes (ISGs) in Whole Blood [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in Immune cell Activation [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in HIV-1 Specific T cell Immune Responses [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in the Frequency of Regulatory T cells [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in the Quantity of HIV-Specific Antibodies [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Changes in the Quality (Effector Functionality) of HIV-Specific Antibodies [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Immunology/Pharmacodynamics: Change in Plasma Inflammatory Markers [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
  • Pharmacokinetic (PK) Parameter: Cmax of Vesatolimod [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
    Cmax is defined as maximum observed concentration of drug in plasma

  • PK Parameter: Ctau of Vesatolimod [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
    Ctau is defined as the observed drug concentration at the end of the dosing interval (tau)

  • PK Parameter: AUCtau of Vesatolimod [ Time Frame: Up to 45 weeks ]
    AUCtau is defined as the area under the plasma concentration versus time curve over the dosing interval (tau)

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Plasma HIV-1 RNA levels <50 copies/mL at screening
  • Pre-ART Plasma HIV-1 RNA set point between 50 and ≤ 5,000 copies/mL measured within two years prior to ART initiation
  • On ART for ≥ 6 months prior to screening
  • Documented plasma HIV-1 RNA < 50 copies/mL for ≥ 6 months preceding the screening visit (or undetectable HIV-1 RNA level according to the local assay being used if the limit of detection is ≥ 50 copies/mL). Unconfirmed virologic elevations of ≥ 50 copies/mL (transient detectable viremia, or "blip") prior to screening are acceptable.

  • Availability of a fully active alternative ART regimen, in the opinion of the Investigator, in the event of discontinuation of the current ART regimen with development of resistance.

  • White Blood Cells ≥ 2,500 cells/μL
  • Platelets ≥ 125,000/mL
  • Absolute Neutrophil Counts ≥ 1000 cells/μL
  • CD4+ count ≥ 500 cells/μL
  • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or bilirubin ≤ 2 × upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Estimated glomerular filtration rate ≥ 60 mL/min
  • No autoimmune disease requiring on-going immunosuppression
  • No evidence of current hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection
  • No evidence of current hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection (positive anti-HCV antibody and negative HCV polymerase chain reaction (PCR) results are acceptable)
  • No documented history of pre-ART CD4 nadir < 200 cells/μL (unknown pre-ART CD4 nadir is acceptable)
  • No history of opportunistic illness indicative of stage 3 HIV
