History of Changes
To evaluate the safety of escalating doses of RMP-7 administered in persons with HIV infection and cryptococcal meningitis and to determine the MTD of the drug. To evaluate the pharmacokinetics, including cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) penetration, of amphotericin B when administered with RMP-7.
Drug : Lobradimil
Drug : Amphotericin B
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase I Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerance of RMP-7 Administered With Amphotericin B to Patients With HIV Infection and Cryptococcal Meningitis|
Further study details as provided by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service:
Patients receive intravenous RMP-7 added to conventional therapy with intravenous amphotericin B (with or without flucytosine). Treatment continues for 14 days, with follow-up visits 4 and 12 weeks later.Eligibility
|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Up to 1 mg/kg amphotericin B for the current episode of cryptococcal meningitis.
- HIV infection.
- Acute cryptococcal meningitis.
- Cardiovascular disorders including congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension (seated diastolic blood pressure > 95 mm Hg), or symptomatic ischemic heart disease (angina).
- Orthostatic hypotension, defined as a decrease in systolic blood pressure of >= 20 mm Hg upon standing.
- Other CNS disease (e.g., other intracranial infections) that may interfere with assessment of response.
- Opening CSF pressure >= 350 mm or papilledema. (For patients with recurrent disease, evidence of mass effect on either MRI or CT excludes.)
