Imaging the HIV Reservoir


Brief description of study

Radiolabelling broadly neutralizing anti-HIV antibody 3BNC117 with a Copper-64 radio isotope for infusion into people with HIV followed by MRI/PET scanning to detect HIV in vivo.

Detailed Study Description

This study aims to develop a method to accurately image the size and location of HIV persistence in HIV-infected individuals. The project aims to combine the broadly neutralizing anti-HIV antibody 3BNC117 with a Copper-64 radio isotope for use in a clinical trial.

The clinical trial has three different stages. The first stage is to recruit two HIV uninfected individuals and determine the safety of 3 mg/kg of 3BNC117 combined with Copper-64 and MRI/PET scanning at 1, 24 and 48 hours post infusion. The second stage is to examine the distribution on MRI/PET of the 3BNC117-Copper-64 combination in four HIV-infected individuals with viremia who are not receiving antiretroviral therapy. The final stage is to perform the same intervention in aviremic people with HIV receiving antiretroviral therapy.
