Safety and Efficacy Study of KP-1461 to Treat ART-Experienced HIV+ Patients
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The primary purpose of the study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of KP-1461 given every 12 hours for 124 days to HIV+ patients who have failed multiple antiretroviral regimens.
Condition or disease
KP-1461 is a prodrug of KP-1212 triphosphate, a unique nucleoside that is incorporated into the HIV viral genome resulting in an accumulation of nucleic substitutions that interfere with viral replication. The study is designed to investigate the safety and antiviral activity for 124 days in antiretroviral-experienced HIV-1-infected subjects. By inducing additional mutagenic events in the viral genome, viral decay accelerators such as KP-1212 may force the virus to exceed the threshold of nonviability.
