HPV Vaccine Therapy in Reducing High-Grade Cervical Lesions in Patients With HIV and HPV


Brief description of study

This randomized phase III trial studies how well human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine therapy works in reducing high-grade cervical lesions in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and HPV. Vaccines made from HPV peptides or antigens may help the body build an effective immune response to kill the HPV virus and prevent cervical lesions from developing or coming back after being removed.

Detailed Study Description

At screening, potential participants will be tested for cervical human papillomavirus (HPV) infection (GeneXpert hrHPV assay and HPV DNA PCR) and undergo cervical colposcopy to confirm the absence of cervical cancer. If eligible, the participant will be randomized to receive either the 9-valent HPV vaccine or saline placebo.

Participants will return 4 and 26 weeks later for the second dose of vaccine or placebo. At week 4, participants will have cervical colposcopy and undergo cryotherapy or loop electrosurgical excisional procedure (LEEP) as appropriate. Participants undergoing cervical cryotherapy will have cervical biopsies before the treatment. Participants will be followed with HPV testing (Gene Xpert and HPV DNA PCR) at weeks 26, 52, 78, and 104, and will have cervical cytology and colposcopy with biopsies at weeks 26, 52, and 104.
