Evaluating the Safety and Tolerability of Antiretroviral Drug Regimens Used as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis to Prevent HIV Infection in At-Risk Men Who Have Sex With Men and in At-Risk Women
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a method of preventing HIV infection through the use of antiretroviral (ARV) medications before exposure to HIV. This study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of four ARV regimens in preventing HIV infection in men who have sex with [more...]  men who may be at risk of getting HIV infection through sex and women who may be at risk of getting HIV infection through sex. The four ARV regimens being evaluated are maraviroc (MVC), MVC plus emtricitabine (FTC), MVC plus tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), and TDF plus FTC. The MVC-containing arms will be compared to TDF/FTC alone and in combination.

Bone, Immunologic, and Virologic Effects of a Antiretroviral Regimen
There are now several HIV treatment options for a person with HIV infection who has not yet been treated. Most people who receive treatment and take their medications as directed have a good result. This is usually determined by measuring the amount of HIV [more...]  in the blood (viral load). The best response is when HIV cannot be found (less than 50 copies/mL) in the blood. However, it has recently become clear that some people with HIV who are receiving effective HIV drugs continue to have more health problems than people without HIV infection. Sometimes, there is damage to organs in the body, including bone, kidneys, and the brain. The main purpose of this study is to compare the effects on bones of the following two drug combinations: - maraviroc (MVC), emtricitabine (FTC), plus darunavir/ritonavir (DRV/r) - tenofovir (TDF) plus emtricitabine (FTC) plus darunavir/ritonavir (DRV/r) Additional reasons this study is being done are the following: - To see how the drug combinations affect the brain and kidneys. - To see how well the drug combinations lower the HIV viral load. - To see how safe the drug combinations are, how well people are able to take the study drug combinations, and how well their immune systems respond to the study drugs. - To see how well the drug combinations get into the blood.

Characterization of Acute and Recent HIV-1 Infections in Zurich: a Long-Term Observational Study
Aim of the study: To describe the epidemiology, longitudinally follow, test the effect of early antiretroviral treatment and investigate early events of virus-host interactions in patients with documented acute or recent HIV-1 infection in Zurich. Study design: This is [more...]  an open label, non-randomized, observational, single center study at the University Hospital Zurich, Division of Infectious Diseases and Hospital Epidemiology. We aim at enrolling approximately 300 patients over a 10 year period. All patients who fulfill the inclusion criteria of a documented acute or recent HIV infection can participate in the study. Patients are offered early combination antiretroviral treatment (cART), if treatment start falls within 90 days after diagnosis of acute HIV-infection. After one year of suppressed HIV-plasma viremia (< 50 copies/ml) patients can chose to stop cART. Patients who have not chosen to undergo early-cART, respectively will stop cART after one year will be followed for a total of 5 years. Viral setpoints reached after treatment interruptions will be compared to historic controls and to the control group not having received cART during acute infection. A battery of virological and immunological assays will be performed on blood samples obtained to better understand early virus-host interactions, which are thought to play a key role in HIV-pathogenesis research. Summary: In summary, this study will provide comprehensive knowledge on early HIV-infection with regard to epidemiology, impact of early-cART on the course of disease and forms the base for a variety of translational research projects addressing early key pathogenesis events between virus and host, relevant for the course of disease, for transmission, for development of vaccines and new treatment strategies. - Trial with medicinal product

Impact of Menstrual Cycle on Antiretroviral Pharmacokinetics in Healthy Women
Data suggest that women taking drugs to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have higher amounts of drugs in their body compared with men taking the same dose of anti-HIV drugs. The reason for this higher drug exposure has not been determined. The primary purpose [more...]  of this study is to examine whether the pharmacokinetics (factors that determine the amount of drug in the body) of anti-HIV drugs change during different phases of the menstrual cycle in women and ultimately result in higher amounts of drug in the body compared with men. In other words, we plan to examine whether changes in sex hormones throughout the menstrual cycle affect the amount of anti-HIV drugs in women. The antiretroviral drugs atazanavir, ritonavir, tenofovir and emtricitabine will be studied. This study will be conducted in healthy women since HIV may change the pharmacokinetics of anti-HIV drugs.

NNRTI vs PI Regimens for HIV Infected Women After They Have Taken Nevirapine to Prevent Mother-To-Child HIV Transmission
Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) are commonly included in anti-HIV drug regimens. However, HIV infected women who have previously taken the single dose NNRTI nevirapine (SD NVP) for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV may not respond [more...]  as well to NNRTIs as women who have never taken NVP. Another class of anti-HIV drugs, protease inhibitors (PIs), may be more effective for women who have previously taken NNRTIs. This study will compare the effectiveness of NNRTI- and PI-based regimens in women who have taken NVP for prevention of MTCT of HIV. This study will also compare regimens including an NNRTI with regimens including a PI in women who have never taken NVP.

A Study to Compare Anti-HIV Drugs Given Twice a Day or Once a Day, With or Without Direct Observation
Anti-HIV drug therapy works best when the drugs are taken exactly as prescribed by a doctor. Because anti-HIV therapy often involves multiple drugs, some people have difficulty taking them all correctly. The easier it is to take anti-HIV drugs, the more likely people will [more...]  take them as prescribed and get the best results. This study will see if people are more successful in taking anti-HIV drugs once a day or twice a day. It also will determine if having a health care professional oversee each weekday dose helps people control their HIV infection. The study will compare taking a three-drug combination twice a day versus taking a three-drug combination just once a day. The study will also compare patients taking the drugs on their own to patients taking the drugs in the presence of a clinical worker. Viral load (amount of HIV in the blood) and drug side effects will be measured.
