A Study of Switching to RPV Plus Other ARVs in HIV-1-infected Children (Aged 2 to <12 Years) Who Are Virologically Suppressed


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the steady state pharmacokinetics (PK) of rilpivirine (RPV) and determine the appropriate dose of RPV in combination with other antiretrovirals (ARVs) in participants aged greater than or equal to 2 to less than 12 years and to evaluate the safety and tolerability of RPV in combination with other ARVs in participants of same age group over a 48-week treatment period with primary endpoint at Week 24.

Detailed Study Description

Participants infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) are routinely treated with combinations of multiple drugs which reduces HIV-1 ribonucleic acid (RNA) to undetectable levels in a substantial proportion of participants and counteracts the risk of viral resistance development. RPV is a potent non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) with in vitro activity against wild type (WT) HIV-1 and against NNRTI resistant HIV-1 mutants. A medical need still exists for the development of age/weight appropriate formulations in children less than (<) 12 years of age. In this study, participants will switch to RPV plus other ARVs. The primary analysis will be performed at Week 24. A participant will be considered to have completed the study if he or she has completed assessments at Week 48 of the study intervention phase. The total study duration for each participant, including screening and study intervention phases, will be approximately 54 weeks. Key efficacy assessments include determination of plasma HIV-1 RNA viral load and measurement of CD4+ cell count. Key safety assessments will include the monitoring of (serious) adverse event ([S]AEs) and HIV-related events, clinical laboratory tests, cardiovascular safety monitoring (vital signs and 12 lead electrocardiogram [ECGs]), and physical examination (including growth).
