Purpose

Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is an important risk factor for HPV infection and the development of HPV-associated lesions in female and male anogenital tract. Data on safety and immunogenicity of quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine in HIV-infected population are few. The present study is a non-randomized controlled clinical trial with the primary objective to determine safety ad immunogenicity of quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (Gardasil®) in HIV-infected female and male adolescents and young adults.

Primary Outcome Measures

  • type specific antibody titers for HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18 at one month after completion of HPV vaccine series (T3) in HIV infected subjects vs. healthy subjects [ Time Frame: one month +/- 10 days after 3° vaccine dose ]
    Immunogenicity of quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (Gardasil®) will be assessed by evaluation of type-specific antibody development for HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18 from seronegative status at baseline (T0) to seropositive status at one month after the completion of HPV vaccine series (T3), compared with the same immunogenicity testings performed in healthy subjects matched for sex and age.
Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • antibody HPV titers to types 6, 11, 16 and 18, one month after the first two vaccination series (T1 and T2) in HIV-infected subjects vs healthy subjects [ Time Frame: one month +/- 10 days after 1°vaccine dose and month+/- 10 days after 2° vaccine dose ]
    Antibody titers for HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18 will be evaluated one month after the first (T1) and second (T2) vaccination dose in HIV-infected adolescents and young adults compared with the same immunological testings in healthy adolescents and young adults.
  • antibody titers to HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18 at month 12(T4)and 18 (T5)from baseline (T0). [ Time Frame: 12 months +/- 10 days and 18 months +/-10 days from baseline ]
    To assess long-term immunogenicity of quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (Gardasil® in HIV-infected and healthy subjects by evaluation of persistence of HPV antibody titers to types 6, 11, 16 and 18 at month 12 (T4) and 18(T5) from baseline (T0).
  • local and systemic adverse events [ Time Frame: 7 days after each vaccination dose ]
    Safety and tolerability of three doses of quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (Gardasil ®) in HIV-infected and healthy subjects will be assessed by evaluating the occurrence and severity of local and systemic adverse events during the 7 days after each vaccination dose.
  • HIV viral load and lymphocyte CD4+ count [ Time Frame: baseline (T0), one month after each vaccination dose (T1, T2 and T3) and at month 12 (T4) and 18 (T5) from baseline. ]
    Longitudinal monitoring of HIV-viral load and lymphocyte CD4+ count will be conducted in HIV-infected subjects from baseline (T0), throughout the study: one month after each vaccination dose (T1, T2, T3) and at month 12 and 18 from baseline (T4, T5).
  • lymphoproliferative responses, cytokine production and immunophenotype analysis of lymphocyte subpopulations [ Time Frame: baseline (T0), one month after 1° vaccination dose (T1) and one month after 3° vaccination dose (T3). ]
    To evaluate in a subgroup of subjects (20 HIV-infected and 20 healthy) the following immunological parameters at baseline and at 1 month after 1° vaccination dose (T1) and at 1 month after 3° vaccination dose (T3): lymphoproliferative responses to HPV-16 L1 from PBMCs in peripheral blood Immunophenotype analysis of lymphocyte subpopulations in peripheral blood Cytokine production from peripheral lymphocyte subpopulations at baseline and after stimulation with HPV-16 recombinant protein L1.
