|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|HIV Lipodystrophy||Drug: mecasermin Drug: Placebo control||Phase 1|
The main objectives of this study are the following:
- Determine the effect of recombinant human insulin like growth factor-I (rhIGF-I) (generic: mecasermin) on subcutaneous adiposity in patients with HIV lipodystrophy syndrome.
- Determine the effects of rhIGF-I on glucose homeostasis and lipids in patients with HIV lipodystrophy.
- Determine the effects of rhIGF-I on apoptosis, mitochondria, and inflammation, in adipose tissue obtained from patients with HIV lipodystrophy.

a subcutaneous injection twice a day
Other Name: Increlex
|Placebo Comparator: Placebo||
Drug: Placebo control
Subcutaneous injection given twice per day of placebo compound, for 24 weeks
- Body composition [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]Participants will have a body scan called a dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan and a single slice abdominal CT scan and mid thigh scan to measure subcutaneous and internal fat.
- Glucose Homeostasis [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]Fasting glucose and insulin will be measured. A subset of patients will undergo a hyperinsulinemic clamp.
