Primary Outcome Measures:
  • SAEs and SUSARs [ Time Frame: through day 180 ]

    For auranofin, everolimus, and vitamin D: the proportions of patients experiencing suspected unexpected serious adverse reactions (SUSARs).

    For CC-11050: the proportion of patients experiencing treatment emergent serious adverse events (SAEs).



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • TEAEs other than SAEs and SUSARs [ Time Frame: through day 180 ]
    TEAEs other than SAEs, categorized according to severity, drug relatedness, and leading to early withdrawal.

  • Sputum culture status on day 56 [ Time Frame: day 56 ]
    Proportion of patients with positive sputum cultures on solid culture medium after 8 weeks of treatment


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Change in FEV1 from baseline to 2 and 6 months [ Time Frame: days 56 and 180 ]
    FEV1 (% of expected value)

  • 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging (change from baseline to 2 months): [ Time Frame: day 56 ]
    Maximum and mean standardized uptake values (SUV)

  • Serum neopterin [ Time Frame: day 56 ]
    change from baseline b. CRP

  • Quantiferon gold in tube [ Time Frame: day 56 ]
    change from baseline

  • Gene expression profiles (exploratory) [ Time Frame: days 56 and 180 ]
    Change from baseline to 2 and 6 months in gene expression profiles

  • PD-1 expression (exploratory) [ Time Frame: days 56 and 180 ]
    PD-1 expression on CD4 and CD8 lymphocytes

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

To determine the safety and preliminary efficacy of 4 TB HDT candidates:

  1. Safety (treatment emergent serious adverse events and SUSARs)
  2. Microbiologic effects in sputum (culture conversion, change in MGIT TTP) and blood (WBA)
  3. PET/CT imaging
  4. Serum markers of inflammation
  5. Effects on Mtb-specific and general immune function
  6. Pulmonary effects (spirometry, 6MWT, O2 saturation, and St. George Respiratory Symptom Questionnaire) In each case, TB HDT effects will be determined by comparison to patients treated with standard TB therapy alone with regard to a common set of primary and secondary endpoints.

PRIMARY ENDPOINTS

  1. For auranofin, everolimus, and vitamin D: the proportions of patients experiencing suspected unexpected serious adverse reactions (SUSARs).
  2. For CC-11050: the proportion of patients experiencing treatment emergent serious adverse events (SAEs).
