Purpose

This trial is aimed at studying the antiviral activity, toxicity and pharmacokinetic (PK) interactions of tenofovir DF and atazanavir enhanced with low dose of ritonavir given alone and then concomitantly as part of a salvage regimen to HIV patients with multiple failure, under conditions allowing to tease out the specific role of atazanavir combined with low dose of ritonavir.

Condition Intervention Phase
HIV Infections

Drug : Tenofovir
Drug : Atazanavir
Drug : Ritonavir
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomized Open Label Study Assessing the Antiviral Activity, Toxicity and Pharmacologic Interaction of Tenofovir DF/Atazanavir Enhanced With Low Dose of Ritonavir as Part of a Salvage Regimen in HIV Infected Patients With Multiple Treatment Failures (ANRS 107 Trial PUZZLE 2)

Further study details as provided by French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis:

Primary Outcome Measures

  • Change in plasma HIV RNA level and percentage of patients with undetectable HIV-RNA in plasma at Week 26
Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Tolerance during the study
  • Changes in CD4+ counts at week 26
  • Emergence of drug-resistant viruses
  • Rate of virus decay in plasma in group 2 during the initial phase (14 days) of therapy according to baseline EC50 of atazanavir
  • Pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of atazanavir alone at day 14
  • Blood samples prior to drug administration (Cmin) and after drug administration on day 14 at +1h, +2h, +3h, +5h, +8h, and +24h in 10 patients of group 2
  • PK assessment on Week 6, of atazanavir, after 4 weeks of co-administration with tenofovir DF. (Blood samples prior to drug administration (Cmin) and after drug administration at +1h, +2h, +3h, +5h, +8h, and +24h in the same 10 patients of group 2)

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: March 2002
Study Completion Date: July 2004

Detailed Description:

When licensed, new drugs are widely used in patients failing antiretroviral therapy, including patients with multiple failures. In such patients, having multi-resistant virus, the introduction of one new drug only in the salvage regimen will infrequently result in undetectable virus load in the plasma. Tenofovir DF and atazanavir appear promising because of their pharmacokinetic profile, activity, safety and resistance properties. In addition, pharmacokinetic data in healthy volunteers suggest that atazanavir could be optimized by adding ritonavir at low dose. Thus, one may speculate that atazanavir pharmacokinetic and antiviral activity could be optimized by adding ritonavir at low dose in patients exhibiting high rate of protease inhibitor mutations.
This protocol is aimed at studying the antiviral activity, toxicity and PK interactions, of tenofovir DF and atazanavir enhanced with low dose of ritonavir given alone and then concomitantly as part of a salvage regimen to patients with multiple failure, under conditions allowing to tease out the specific role of atazanavir combined with low dose of ritonavir.
EKG abnormalities (increased PR and QTc intervals) were observed in normal volunteers treated with atazanavir, therefore EKG safety monitoring will be performed on all subjects during this study
