History of Changes
This is a randomized, double-blind, multicenter trial testing 2 doses of PEG-Intron, 1.0mcg/kg/week and 3.0mcg/kg/week in heavily treatment-experienced HIV-infected patients compared to placebo. The study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of PEG-Intron when added to stable optimized background antiretroviral therapy in this patient population.
Drug : PEG-Intron
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase 3 Study of PEG-Intron in Heavily Treatment-experienced, HIV-infected Patients|
Further study details as provided by Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.:
|Study Start Date:||March 2002|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2003|
|Primary Completion Date:||October 2003 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
This study will randomize 675 patients (225 in each of the 3 arms) to either: PEG-Intron
1mcg; 3mcg or Placebo, at 90 centers worldwide. Each center will enroll approximately 10
Study drug will be added to optimized background anti-retroviral therapy of patients whose HIV RNA is incompletely suppressed by their therapy (HIV RNA 400-50,000 copies/ML) after 2-6 months.
A single dose reduction of 50% will be allowed for toxicity. An Interim Analysis will be conducted when 50% of patients have completed 24 weeks of therapy. The study treatment phase will be 48 weeks with monthly visits for virologic virologic and safety monitoring. The primary endpoint is change in HIV RNA from baseline to week to assess efficacy. Durability of response will be assessed at 48 weeks.
