History of Changes
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to give HIV-positive patients L2-7001 (a type of interleukin-2) plus anti-HIV therapy. Interleukin-2 (IL-2) is a substance naturally produced by the body's white blood cells that plays an important role in helping the body fight infection. IL-2 may be able to boost the immune systems of people with HIV infection.
Drug : Aldesleukin
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Bridging Dose-Escalation Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetic Properties, and Immunologic Effect of Subcutaneous L2-7001 (Recombinant Human Interleukin-2) in Patients Infected With HIV With CD4+ T-Cell Counts of 300 to 500 Cells/mm3 and Viral Burden Under 10,000 Copies/Ml on Active Antiretroviral Therapy (ART)|

|Study Start Date:||August 1999|
This study takes place in two phases. Phase A consists of an open-label dose-escalation of L2-7001 through four dose levels. Ascending dose cohorts of five patients are studied. The safety and tolerability of L2-7001 is assessed in preparation for the second phase of the study and to estimate an MTD. Phase B involves randomization of 190 patients to (a) one of three dose levels of L2-7001 plus ART, (b) one of two dosing levels of Proleukin plus ART, or (c) ART alone. L2-7001 and Proleukin are given SC every 12 hours for the first 5 days of an 8-week cycle for three cycles. Serum IL-2 levels, soluble IL-2 receptor levels, and levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines are evaluated in 8 patients randomized to each treatment cohort of Phase B. All patients completing this phase of the protocol are eligible to be screened for enrollment in a maintenance use protocol which will allow for access to L2-7001.Eligibility
