Presentation on theme: "Opportunistic Infections Dr. Robert Harrington, M.D. December 18, 2008"— Presentation transcript:
1 Opportunistic Infections Dr. Robert Harrington, M.D. December 18, 2008 I’d like to welcome everyone to the I-TECH HIV/AIDS Clinical Seminar Series. We have with us today Dr. Robert Harrington. Dr. Harrington is currently an associate professor of medicine at the University of Washington and medical director of the Harborview Medical Center HIV clinic (the Madison Clinic). His interests are in general infectious diseases, clinical HIV, and the development of laboratory assays of HIV infectivity. He’s published over 40 manuscripts and book chapters on HIV and infectious diseases.Today he will be presenting on HIV and opportunistic infections (OIs). He will review relevant facts, differential diagnoses, and treatment, as well as the timing of HAART initiation in the context of treating OIs.Before we begin, I’d like to ask all the sites to type in how many participants are at their sites. If you are an individual, please type “1”.If your site has not already provided a topic suggestion for next year’s series, please do so now. Site coordinators should solicit ideas from participants at this time During the session, Maureen will be privately chatting sites who have not responded. Your input is very important to the planning for next year’s Clinical Seminar Series.

19 Case 1A 40 yo male with severe bipolar disease presents with cough, weight loss, dyspnea and low grade fever.His PMH is notable for recurrent bacterial pneumonia, methamphetamine and alcohol abuse. He has refused all medications.On exam he is thin and in mild respiratory distress. T 38C, BP 100/70, HR 100, RR 18, O2 saturation 89% at rest. Lung exam reveals fine rales at lung bases.
21 Case 1What diagnostic studies do you want?(www.tulane.edu)
22 Case 1 How would you treat this patient? Treatment: TMP-SMX, pentamidineTimethoprim-dapsone, clindamycin and primaquine, atovoqoneTrimetrexate and leucovorinSevere disease (paO2 < 70 or Aa gradient > 35): add steroidsHow would you treat this patient?
23 Case 1 Over the next 10 days the patient slowly improves. His CD4 T-cell count returns at 60 cells/uL.Should he receive HAART and, if so, when should he start?
24 Timing of HAART#142: Immediate Vs Delayed ART in Setting of Acute OI, Zolopa, Powderly, et.al. (ACTG 5164)Randomized study of ARV given within 14 days of Rx for OI Vs delayed (at least 4 wks)Patients with TB excludedPrimary endpoint: 48 week combination of 3 categorical variables1. Death or alive with new AIDS diagnosis2. Alive with HIV RNA > 50 and no new AIDS diagnosis3. Alive with HIV RNA < 50 and no new AIDS diagnosis
25 Timing of HAART#142: Immediate Vs Delayed ART in Setting of Acute OI, Zolopa, Powderly, et.al. (ACTG 5164)Patients (N=282)Median age 38Median CD4 = 29 and log10 HIV RNA level = 5.07OIsPCP 63%Cryptococcal meningitis 13%Pneumonia 10%Median time to starting ART 12 Vs 45 days
26 Timing of HAART ACTG 5164: Results No significant difference between immediate Vs delayed for the composite endpointImmediate arm had fewer deaths/new AIDS diagnosisImmediate arm had longer time to death/new AIDS diagnosis (HR 0.53)P=0.035
27 Case 2RT is an asymptomatic 47 yo Asian male with newly diagnosed HIV who presents for care.His PMH is notable for multiple STDs and “hepatitis”PE is notable only for thrush, mild cervical adenopathy and seborrheic dermatitis.CD4 is 380, HIVRNA is 80K, ALT is 240, HepAAB+, HepCAB and RNA negative, HepBsAG+, cAB+, eAG+ and HBV DNA 40 million
28 Case 2How common is chronic Hepatitis B infection and why do you suppose he has it?What about co-infection with HIV?

33 Hepatitis B: Epidemiology 2 billion people have evidence of HBV infection1/3 of world’s populations350 million people chronically infected15% to 25% will develop HBV-related chronic liver disease (cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma) and die without interventionUp to 1 million deaths worldwide each year from HBV-related chronic liver diseaseWorldwide Burden of DiseaseWorldwide, approximately 2,000 million individuals, or X% of the world’s population, have serologic evidence of current or past HBV infection. Over 200 million individuals are chronically infected with HBV, and are at risk of developing and dying from HBV-related chronic liver disease, including cirrhosis and primary hepatocellular carcinoma. Each year 1 million people die from HBV-related chronic liver disease making it one of the major causes of mortality worldwide. (Kane M. Global status of HB Immjnization, Acta Gastro-Enterologica Belgica, LXI, April-June 1998)
34 Hepatitis B: Epidemiology Geographic Distribution of Chronic HBV InfectionThe world can be divided into areas of high, intermediate, and low endemicity based on the prevalence of HBsAg in the population. Areas of high endemicity are those in which the prevalence of HBsAg >8%. Southeast Asia, East Asia, many of the Pacific Islands, and parts of South America and Africa are areas of high endemicity. Areas of intermediate endemicity are those in which the prevalence of HBsAg is 2%-7%, and include Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and central Asia. Areas of low endemicity, in which <2% of the population is HBsAg positive, include Australia, North America, and Western Europe.HBsAg Prevalence8% - High2-7% - Intermediate<2% - Low
35 Hepatitis B: Epidemiology Among all the chronic hepatitis B carriers worldwide, 75% are AsiansWhile the overall incidence of chronic hepatitis B in the US population is less than 1 in 200, the incidence among Asian Americans is 1 in 10 (Source: Asian Liver Center of Stanford University)9-16% of HIV infected patients in the US are co-infected with HBV
36 Case 2….back to the caseHe is not inclined to start HAART but wants to discuss it with you.Should you be worried about his HBV infection and why?Does it influence your decision to recommend HAART?

45 Treatment of HBV/HIV Co-infection All HBV/HIV patients should be offered HAARTIf treating HBV only can use IFN or adefovirWhen treating both HIV and HBV - Rx with TDF and FTC is preferredPatients already on HAART with agents not active against HBV can be treated with the addition of IFN, adefovir or entecavirPatients with lamivudine resistant HBV can be treated with the addition of TDFWhen altering HAART, consider the need to continue HBV therapy unless the patient has cleared HBeAg
46 Case 3A 38 yo South African male presents with a 10 kg weight loss, 10 weeks of cough and intermittent fever. He has no past medical history.On exam he is thin, T 38.8 C, BP 100/70, HR 104, RR 20. He has prominent cervical adenopathy, oral thrush and course breath sounds over his R upper and mid lung zones.

48 Case 3He is admitted to a hospital ward with similar patients and started on “RIPE” therapy.After a week his constitutional symptoms improve. His CD4 T-cell count measures 15 cells/uL.Should he be offered HAART?If so, when should HAART be started?Are there TB and HIV drug interactions of concern?

54 TB/HIV Co-infection: Principles of Treatment Treatment generally the same as in HIV- patients (4 drugs for 2 months and 2 drugs for 4 months)Sub-optimal response (culture + after 2 months) – give 9 months, skeletal TB – 6 to 9 months, CNS TB – 9 to 12 monthsIf using regimens without INH or a rifamycin - duration should be 12 to 15 months
55 Principles of Treatment: Importance of Rifamycin Treatment with NON rifamycin-containing regimens is associated with:• Higher relapse rates• Higher mortalityWallis, et al. (1996) Tuber Lung Dis 77:516-23Hawken, et al. (1993) Lancet 342:332-38Perriens, et al. (1991) AM Rev Resp Dis 144:750-55Korwnromp, et al. (2003) CID 37:101-12
56 Principles of Treatment Be wary of drug interactions between the rifamycins and HIV medicationsDo not use TB treatment regimens that are dosed weekly (e.g. INH-rifapentine) or even twice weekly in patients with CD4 counts < 100Consider measuring drugs levels if there is concern for malabsorption or increased elimination of TB therapies
57 Principles of Treatment Drug Interactions: The P450 systemIsoform CYP 3A is affected and/or involved in the metabolism of rifamycins, NNRTI and PIsRifamycins: Induce CYP 3ARifampin > rifapentine > rifabutinRifampin is not metabolized by CYP 3A (level not affected by other drugs that influence CYP 3A)Rifabutin is metabolized by CYP 3A (level is affected by other drugs that also affect CYP 3A)
58 Principles of Treatment Drug Interactions: The P450 systemNNRTIs (efavirenz and nevirapine)Induce CYP 3AProtease Inhibitors (many)Inhibit CYP 3A
59 Principles of Treatment If using rifampin - avoid PI-based HAART - use NNRTIs insteadIf using rifabutin - can use PIs or NNRTI - but will have to dose adjust the rifabutin in most cases

71 Case 4A 46 yo Ethiopian male with untreated HIV and a CD4 T-cell count of 110 presents with mild dysphagia, weight loss, abdominal fullness and fatigue.On exam he appears chronically ill. T 38 C, BP 110/60, HR 98, RR12. He has thrush, a palpable liver and spleen tip and several nodular skin lesions.His Hct is 24, WBC 1800, plts 90. AST 110, ALT 123, AP 200, bili 2.3.
72 Case 4Skin lesions for Case 4(www.dermatology.cdlib.org)
73 Case 4 What is your differential diagnosis for this patient? What diagnostic tests will you perform?
74 Case 4Blood smear or buffy coat or BM of Leishmania amastigotes
75 Leishmaniasis and HIV An intracellular protozoa Transmitted to humans by phlebotomine sand fliesMost cases reported in southern Europe (Spain, Italy, France), Ethiopia, central and south America
76 Leishmaniasis and HIVReported cases of Leishmania and HIV Co-infection(www.who.int)
77 Leishmaniasis and HIV Clinically Cutaneous, mucosal or visceral diseaseHIV patients:Disseminated visceral diseaseCytopeniasAtypical locations: GI, lung, pleura and peritoneal spaces, unusual cutaneous lesions
78 Leishmaniasis and HIV Treatment: HAART + AmB 0.5 to 1.0mg/kg/d (to total dose of gms)Liposomal AmB 2-4mg/kg/d (to total dose of 20 to 60 mg/kg)Pentavalent antimony 20 mg/kg/d for 3-4 weeksSecondary prophylaxis q 3 to 4 weeksConsider discontinuing if CD4 > 350
80 SummaryOpportunistic infections are predictable based on a patients immune status and environmentDisseminated and atypical presentations are the rule with extreme immune suppressionProphylaxis against certain OIs is indicated if the OI is common and the prophylaxis is affordable, effective and well toleratedHAART alone is treatment enough for certain OIs and can eliminate the need for prophylaxisThe timing of HAART relative to OI therapy is controversial but should probably be early…..however, watch out for IRIS!
