|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00834457|
Recruitment Status : Completed

Open-label study of a regimen of antiretrovirals for the treatment of AIDS-KS. This study will be conducted at a single site, the Parirenyatwa Hospital KS Clinic.
Step 1 was conducted to determine the extent of clinical resolution of AIDS-KS disease in response to treatment with antiretroviral therapy and to investigate whether clinical resolution of KS is associated with suppression of KSHV replication.
Step 2 was developed to then evaluate the clinical, immunological, and virological effects of a switch from a twice-daily all-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) antiretroviral regimen to a once-daily regimen of 2 NRTIs plus a ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitor in persons with AIDS-KS and good virologic suppression an all NRTI regimen.
Step 3 was included to evaluate the clinical, immunological, and virological effects of intensification with a ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitor in persons with AIDS-KS who have virological failure on an all NRTI regimen.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|AIDS-related Kaposi's Sarcoma||Drug: abacavir/3TC/zidovudine Drug: abacavir /3TC plus ritonavir boosted lopinavir||Phase 2 Phase 3|
To identify factors associated with successful treatment of KS with antiretroviral therapy and to determine if highly active antiretroviral therapy improves survival and quality of life for persons with AIDS-KS in Zimbabwe.
A secondary objective is to investigate the durability of HIV-1 suppression by the combination of ABC/3TC/ZDV in persons infected with HIV-1 subtype C and to evaluate the timing and characteristics of mutations in HIV-1 reverse transcriptase in subjects who fail to achieve, or to maintain suppression of HIV-1 replication during treatment with ABC/3TC/ZDV.
An important objective is to assess adherence to a simplified antiretroviral regimen in a resource-limited setting.
The study will evaluate the clinical, immunological, and virological effects of a switch from a twice-daily all-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) antiretroviral regimen to a once-daily regimen of 2 NRTIs plus a ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitor in persons with AIDS-KS and good virologic suppression on ABC/3TC/ZDV (see above).

Other Name: Trizivir
Active Comparator: 2B
co-formulated abacavir 600mg/3TC 300mg orally (as Kivexa) one tablet daily plus fixed dose lopinavir 133.3mg/ritonavir 33.3mg orally (as Aluvia) four tablets daily for 96 weeks
Drug: abacavir /3TC plus ritonavir boosted lopinavir
