Brief Summary:
Ibalizumab is a monoclonal antibody that works by blocking HIV entry into the immune system cells (CD4+ or T-cells) the virus typically infects. Ibalizumab is intended for use in combination with other anti-HIV drugs in people with multi-drug resistant HIV and limited treatment options. This study will collect further information on the safety and tolerability of intravenously administered (IV) ibalizumab combined with an optimized background regimen for treating multi-drug resistant HIV-1 infection, and will provide continuing access to ibalizumab for patients completing a prior ibalizumab clinical trial.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Drug: ibalizumab Drug: Optimized Background Regimen Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Participants will enroll into one of two study cohorts. Cohort 1 will provide continued administration of IV ibalizumab for patients completing a prior ibalizumab clinical trial (TaiMed-sponsored or Investigator-Sponsored). Patients will continue to receive IV infusions of ibalizumab at the dosage assigned in the previous study - either 800 mg once every two weeks, or 2000 mg once every four weeks.

Cohort 2 will provide IV ibalizumab, 800 mg once every two weeks, for qualifying patients with multi-drug resistant HIV-1 and limited treatment options who have never previously received ibalizumab.

Participants may continue in this study for 48 weeks, or until ibalizumab becomes commercially available, whichever occurs first.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cohort 1

IV ibalizumab (combined with optimized background regimen):

800 mg once every two weeks for patients receiving that dosage on prior, successfully completed ibalizumab clinical trial

OR

2000 mg once every four weeks for patients receiving that dosage on prior, successfully completed ibalizumab clinical trial

Administered for 48 weeks, or until ibalizumab becomes commercially available

Drug: ibalizumab
Intravenous infusion of humanized monoclonal antibody binding with a region of Domain 2 of CD4 receptor, blocking post-attachment conformational changes necessary for HIV cell entry
Other Name: TNX-355, Hu5A8

Drug: Optimized Background Regimen
An investigator-selected, standard-of-care combination regimen of antiretroviral agents for treating HIV-1 infection, selected based upon patient treatment history and the results of previous viral resistance testing. The combination must contain at least one agent other than ibalizumab to which the patient's virus is sensitive (susceptible).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and Tolerability of ibalizumab + OBR assessed by the occurrence of Adverse Events and Discontinuations [ Time Frame: Through 48 weeks ]

    Proportion of patients in Cohort 2 achieving at least a 0.5 log10 decrease from Baseline in viral load at Day 7 of the study


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. HIV Resistance [ Time Frame: Through 48 weeks ]
    HIV-1 sensitivity/susceptibility changes associated with virologic failure after administration of ibalizumab, as assessed by genotypic and phenotypic analysis of samples collected upon the occurrence of virologic failure as compared with Baseline samples

  2. Effectiveness of ibalizumab + OBR by Viral Suppression to <50 Copies (Cohort 2 only) [ Time Frame: Through 48 weeks ]

  3. Effectiveness of ibalizumab + OBR by Viral Suppression to <400 Copies (Cohort 2 only) [ Time Frame: Through 48 weeks ]
    Proportion of patients in Cohort 2 with HIV-1 RNA levels <400 copies/mL at protocol-specified time points

  4. Effectiveness of ibalizumab + OBR by Mean Change in Viral Load from Baseline (Cohort 2 only) [ Time Frame: Through 48 weeks ]
    The mean change in viral load from Baseline measurement at study Day 7, and all other assessment time points for patients in Cohort 2

  5. Effectiveness of ibalizumab + OBR by 0.5 Log10 Decrease in Viral Load from Baseline (Cohort 2 only) [ Time Frame: Through 48 weeks ]
    The proportion of patients in Cohort 2 achieving at least a 0.5 log10 decrease in viral load from Baseline measurement at all assessment time points
