Brief Summary:
The trial will randomise HIV/HBV co-infected individuals to different HBV-active antiretroviral therapy treatment regimens.

Condition or disease Phase
HIV Hepatitis-B Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Longitudinal study of circulating and intra-hepatic HBV-specific T-cell immunity in the setting of a randomised, controlled, international, multi-centre outpatient trial. The trial will randomise HIV/HBV co-infected individuals to different HBV-active antiretroviral therapy treatment regimens.

Study population: Patients with HIV/HBV co-infection who are naive to HIV/HBV therapy, have detectable HBV viremia and are willing to start antiretroviral therapy.


Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 36 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Generation of HBV-specific T-cell Immunity in Individuals With HIV/HBV Co-infection Receiving HBV-active Antiretroviral Therapy

HIV/Hepatitis coinfected patients who use at least one hepatitis activity drug or medications



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To characterize circulating and intra-hepatic anti-HBV T-cell responses longitudinally in HIV-1/HBV co-infected individuals, following effective anti-HBV therapy [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To identify novel CD4 and CD8 T cell HBV epitopes associated with HBV clearance. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
  2. To identify emergence of cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) "escape" mutants following anti-HBV therapy [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
  3. To determine the effect of HIV-1 co-infection and anti-HBV T-cell responses on clearance of free virions and HBV reservoirs using viral dynamic parameters and direct quantification of HBV hepatic reservoirs [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
