Disease: Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection, HIV (NCT05144386)

Disease info:

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It harms the immune system by destroying the white blood cells that fight infection, putting infected individuals at risk for serious infections and certain cancers. AIDS stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. It is the final stage of infection with HIV. Not everyone with HIV develops AIDS.

Worldwide, there were about 1.7 million new cases of HIV in 2018. About 37.9 million people were living with HIV around the world in 2018, and 23.3 million of them were receiving medicines to treat HIV, called antiretroviral therapy (ART).

Status: Active recruiting


This is a First in Human (FIH), open-label, sequential cohort, single ascending dose (SAD) study of EBT-101 administered IV to aviremic HIV-1 infected adults on stable antiretroviral therapy (ART).

On Day 1, eligible participants will receive a single IV dose of EBT-101. All participants will be assessed for eligibility for an analytical treatment interruption (ATI) of their background ART at Week 12. All participants will be followed through Week 48; participants who undergo ATI will have more frequent study visits than non-ATI participants.

Eligible participants who are enrolled in the FIH study (EBT-101-001) will also be enrolled in a separate Long Term Follow Up (LTFU) study (EBT-101-002) for safety monitoring. The duration of the LTFU study will be up to 15 years.
