BACKGROUND The protease inhibitor darunavir has been shown to be efficacious in highly treatment-experienced patients with HIV infection, but needs to be assessed in patients with a broader range of treatment experience. We did a randomised, controlled, phase III trial (TITAN) to compare 48-week efficacy and safety of darunavir-ritonavir with that of(More)
BACKGROUND The continuing, randomised, multinational, phase IIB POWER 1 and 2 studies aim to evaluate efficacy and safety of darunavir in combination with low-dose ritonavir in treatment-experienced HIV-1-infected patients. We did a pooled subgroup analysis to update results at week 48 for patients receiving the recommended dose of darunavir-ritonavir(More)
Both the magnitude and breadth of HIV-specific immunity were evaluated longitudinally on samples collected from six subjects starting highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) preseroconversion (group 1), 11 recently infected subjects starting HAART postseroconversion (group 2), five subjects starting HAART in the second half of the first year of(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Interactions between C-C chemokine receptor types 2 (CCR2) and 5 (CCR5) and their ligands, including CCL2 and CCL5, mediate fibrogenesis by promoting monocyte/macrophage recruitment and tissue infiltration, as well as hepatic stellate cell activation. Cenicriviroc (CVC) is an oral, dual CCR2/CCR5 antagonist with nanomolar potency against(More)
Twenty-five elder subjects were classified in two groups according to the MMS score and the cognitive evoked potentials. Normal subjects (n = 15) had mean MMS = 27.6 and mean P3 amplitude = 7.1 uV), while patients with cognitive decline (n = 10) had respective values of 18 (MMS) and 3.3 uV (P3). Spectral analysis and non-linear analysis of EEG (recurrence(More)
BACKGROUND Maraviroc activity against HIV-2, a virus naturally resistant to different HIV-1 antiretroviral drugs, has been recently demonstrated. The aim of this study was to assess HIV-2 susceptibility to cenicriviroc, a novel, once-daily, dual CCR5 and CCR2 antagonist that has completed Phase 2b development in HIV-1 infection. METHODS Cenicriviroc(More)
INTRODUCTION Cenicriviroc (CVC), a once-daily, dual CCR5/CCR2 co-receptor antagonist, has completed Phase 2b development. CVC demonstrated favourable safety and similar efficacy compared with efavirenz (EFV) in Study 202 (NCT01338883); an ex vivo sub-analysis evaluated treatment effects on HIV entry, measured by intracellular HIV DNA declines, in subjects(More)
