A5409: A Phase 2 Randomized, Adaptive, Dose-Ranging, Open-Label Trial of Novel Regimens for the Treatment of Pulmonary Tuberculosis (RAD-TB)
The standard of care (SOC) treatment of tuberculosis (TB) was developed over 40 years ago, and the treatment is long (6 months) and hard. In many settings, the medicine does not work well because people stop taking it or miss doses, which leads to TB returning. For some people, the SOC treatment can cause negative side effects.
This study will evaluate new medication regimens for the treatment of TB. This study is adaptive, which means, as new medication regimens are identified for the treatment of TB, some of them will be selected for testing in this study. Therefore, there may be different drug regimens being used as part of the study at different times.
A5397/HVTN 603:A Phase 2a/2b Study Evaluating Safety, Immunogenicity, and Therapeutic Efficacy of ID93 + GLA-SE Vaccination in Participants with Rifampicin-Susceptible Pulmonary TB
Effective tuberculosis (TB) treatment is available and saves millions of lives, but it has not had a significant impact on the global TB epidemic. The treatment requires strict adherence to taking the medicine on schedule, and if it isn’t taken as directed people can relapse before they complete treatment. TB can recur in up to 8% of people who successfully complete TB treatment. Having an effective TB vaccine to prevent TB infection and control TB disease is essential to eliminate TB globally.
A5397/HVTN 603 will give participants 2 injections of a study vaccine called ID93+GLA-SE or a placebo at different times after they have started taking TB treatment. The researchers will compare responses in people who get the study vaccine to people who get the placebo. This study will enroll both people with and without HIV. It is the first to test ID93 + GLA-SE in people living with HIV (PLWH).
A5385: An Observational Post-Intervention Cohort Destination Protocol
This study is a two-step, non-interventional extension study for individuals participating in another interventional HIV cure trial (parent study) that includes an analytical treatment interruption (ATI) (stopping anti-HIV therapy [ART] while monitoring viral load). Participants will be individuals who achieved post-intervention control (PIC) (maintaining HIV suppression after treatment interruption) in their parent study.
Step 1 will consist of an extended ATI period in which PICs will be monitored for safety, viral, and immune outcomes. Time to viral rebound and restart of antiretroviral therapy (ART) will be measured. Participants will begin Step 2 if they meet ART restart criteria and will be monitored for safety, immune, and viral outcomes through 48 weeks after ART restart.
A5403: Giving Standardized Estradiol Therapy In Transgender Women to Research Interactions with HIV Therapy: the GET IT RIgHT Study
Transgender women (TW) are the fastest-growing group of people with HIV. Historically, TW have had few opportunities to participate in research, and often experience barriers to engaging in care. More research is needed to help providers when it comes to choosing HIV medications in TW on Feminizing Hormone Therapy (FHT). This is an open-label, non-randomized trial of adult TW on three types of HIV medications who will receive estradiol for FHT for 48 weeks.
A5321: Decay of HIV-1 Reservoirs in Participants on Long-Term Antiretroviral Therapy: The ACTG HIV Reservoirs Cohort (AHRC) Study
AHRC (pronounced “ARC”) is a study of differences and changes over time in HIV reservoirs (groups of HIV-infected cells that “hide” from anti-HIV medications). This study enrolls people into one of six groups, based on their different HIV treatment histories. The current version of this study is only enrolling for Group 6, which will include people who acquired or are suspected to have acquired HIV while taking long-acting cabotegravir (LA CAB) for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).

A5332: REPRIEVE Trial
In this study, people between the ages of 40 and 75 with HIV will be randomized (like flipping a coin) to take the pill pitavastatin OR a placebo (non-active pill) to see if pitavastatin can help prevent heart disease and death in people who are taking HIV medication. You will not know if you are taking pitavastatin or placebo. The REPRIEVE trial will enroll about 7500 people from several countries.
A5379: B-ENHANCEMENT OF HBV VACCINATION IN PERSONS LIVING WITH HIV (BEe-HIVe): Evaluation of HEPLISAV-B
A5379 is a study looking at hepatitis B vaccination in adults living with HIV. Hepatitis B is a serious viral infection that affects the liver and is transmitted through blood and body fluids. The study will involve individuals who have received a previous hepatitis B vaccination but the vaccine did not respond well and individuals who have never received the vaccination. The study will take place both in the US and internationally. The study will compare how well an individual responds to the vaccine in different groups based on the type of vaccine and number of doses.
