Double-method Comparative Study in Order to Predict the Use of Co-receptors From Type 1 HIV: Phenotypic Study (Trofile ESTA®) and Virologic Response to a CCR5 Antagonist in the Short Term (TROPISMVC)

The summary of the Study is to compare two methods in order to predict how the 1-HIV will use a co-receptor: the use of an accredited test (TROFILE ESTA®) and the viral response to a CCR5 antagonist in the short term.

Official Title: Estudio Comparativo de Dos métodos Para Predecir el Uso de Co-receptores Por el Virus de la Inmunodeficiencia 1 (HIV-1): el Ensayo fenotípico (Trofile ESTA®) y la Respuesta virológica a Corto Plazo a un Antagonista de CCR5

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine if there is a correlation between the Trofile ESTA® test for viral tropism and the viral load reduction after a short treatment with maraviroc in naïve patients (patients with no previous HAART) [ Time Frame: 10 days of treatment per patient ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish a viral load reduction cut point, which would differentiate R5-tropic virus from non-R5 tropic virus(X4/dual/mixed). [ Time Frame: 1 month per patient ]
  • To assess the viral response to a CCR5 antagonist according to the viral tropism identified in the phenotypic Study. [ Time Frame: 1 month per patient ]
  • Safety assessment throughout the Study [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Maraviroc effects assessment in the drug-resistance evolution in naïve patients [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Tropism changes assessment since the Screening period [ Time Frame: 1 month per patient ]

Enrollment: 58
Study Start Date: May 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Maraviroc + Trofile ESTA®
the patients have the Trofile ESTA® test performed and sent for evaluation. Once the results are obtained (about 1 month later), the patients take the medication Maraviroc during ten days. The viral load assessment throughout the Study help to make a prediction to assess if the patients would have a positive response Vs. CCR5 antagonist of a negative response
Other: Maraviroc + Trofile ESTA® (diagnose test)
The Trofile ESTA® will be performed in those patients and once the results are obtained (within one month approximately), the patients will be treated with the medication Maraviroc
