This is a 24-week, one arm, open-label, interventional, non-comparative multicenter study to evaluate lipid changes in HIV infected women with hyperlipidemia on boosted PI based regimen after switching their boosted PI to raltegravir at standard dosage with 400mg twice daily.

This study aims to study the effect on metabolic profiles by switching hyperlipidemic HIV infected women from a PI based regimen to raltegravir.

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction in the plasma concentration of cholesterol [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A reduction of > 5% in the plasma concentration of direct LDL cholesterol from baseline to week 12 or > 10% reduction of total cholesterol or reduction of lipid lowering agents is expected. Reduction of lipid lowering agents is defined as reduction due to amelioration of lipid profiles and does not include reduction due to side effects or other toxicity issues.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • changes from baseline in total cholesterol, triglycerides and HDL cholesterol over time [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • evaluate risk reduction of cardiovascular risk during the treatment period according to Framingham risk score [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: May 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
