Effect of Maraviroc Intensification on the Decay of HIV-1 DNA in PBMC and residual viremia of Recently Infected Patients Initiating Treatment with Raltegravir plus Tenofovir/Emtricitabine> a 48-week Randomized Study Maria C Puertas 1, Josep M Llibre 2, Mònica Ballestero 1, Marta Massanella 1, Maria J Buzon 1, Anna Esteve 3, Josep M Miró 4, Julià Blanco 1, Bonaventura Clotet 1,2, Javier Martinez-Picado 1,5 * and the Maraviboost Study group 1 IrsiCaixa – AIDS Research Institute, Institut de Recerca en Ciències de la Salut Germans Trias i Pujol (IGTP), Badalona, Spain; 2 Lluita Contra la SIDA Foundation, Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol, Badalona, Spain 3 Center for Epidemiological Studies on STI and HIV/AIDS of Catalonia, Badalona, Spain; 4 Hospital Clinic - IDIBAPS, University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain; 5 Institució Catalana de Recerca i Estudis Avançats (ICREA), Barcelona, Spain #351
Recruitment and follow-up HIV infection < 24 weeks CCR5 +
Results 2: Residual viremia Viral load rapidly decays during the first 4 weeks, reaching a final 4 log decay at week 48 (1.04 vs 1.12 log RNA HIV-1 copies/ml respectively, in the intensified and the control arm). Fitting the kinetics of residual viremia to a two-phase decay model shows a slightly higher fast decay rate in the control arm (0.77 vs 0.60 log per week) during the first phase decay, followed by a second linear phase decay similar in both arms.
Results 3: Total HIV-1 DNA in PBMC Total HIV-1 DNA in PBMC is progressively reduced, from baseline to week 48, in both treatment groups. On the whole, we observed an 8 fold decrease in the total HIV-1 DNA reservoir in the cells.
Results 5: Episomal HIV-1 DNA forms A transient increase in 2-LTR circles, a surrogate marker of recent infection events, was observed in both groups early after treatment initiation. Of note, in the intensified group the amount of 2-LTR circles in PBMC significantly decayed below the BL as early as week 12, while in the control group these episomal forms only reached a significant decrease after week 24.
Conclusions Early HAART initiation in recently HIV-1 infected patients rapidly decreases the plasma viremia and total HIV-1 DNA in PBMC, and +MVC reduces viral replication faster, but… No major differences in latent reservoir size between groups were observed after 48 weeks.
Changes in Cardiovascular Biomarkers in Subjects Switching from Ritonavir-Boosted Protease Inhibitors to Raltegravir: The SPIRAL Study. E Martinez 1, P Monteiro 1, JM Llibre 2, F Gutierrez 3, D Podzamczer 4, A Antela 5, J Berenguer 6, I Perez 1, J Pich 1, JM Gatell 1, and the SPIRAL Study Group. 1 Hospital Clinic-IDIBAPS, University of Barcelona, Barcelona; 2 Germans Trias i Pujol University Hospital and Lluita contra la SIDA Foundation, Badalona; 3 Hospital General Universitario de Elche, Elche; 4 Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge, L`Hospitalet de Llobregat; 5 Complexo Hospitalario Universitario de Santiago, Santiago de Compostela; and 6 Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Madrid, all in Spain. #834

Conclusions Switching from PI/r to RAL led to significant changes in several cardiovascular biomarkers associated with inflammation, insulin resistance and hypercoagulability, although not in those assoc. with endothelial dysfunction. There were few and weak significant correlations between changes in lipids and changes in biomarkers suggesting that decreases in inflammation, insulin resistance, and hypercoagulability biomarkers were rather independent of lipid changes.

In our pts with moderate/high CVR, an intensive and multidisciplinary intervention on lifestyle was associated with an increase in cIMT, specially in carotid bulb region, despite and improvement in lipid profile and quitting smoking. Probably a more intensive reduction in LDL-c is crucial to decrease cIMT progression in addition to a better control of other CVR factors such as tobacco. Conclusions

Figure 3. Percentages of subjects with neurocognitive impairment Neurocognitive outcomes Confounding comorbidities included: depression or anxiety disorders, drug use, presence of a psychiatric diagnosis, psychopharmacologic treatment, or current or past opportunistic infection involving CNS. In the LPV/r-MT group 7 (41%) patients showed NCI while in LPV/r-HAART group this occurred in 10 (59%); p=0.48. When patients with possible confounding comorbidities were excluded, the results were similar: 6/13 (46%) patients showed NCI in LPV/r-MT group (46%) and 8/13 (61%) in LPV/r-HAART group (p=0.43). Considering neurocognitive functioning, values were mildly better in MT group. In total sample, GDS was 0.23 in MT group and 0.46 in HAART group (p=0.025), and in non-comorbities sample 0.25 and 0.5 (p=0.04), respectively.
Figure 2. Patients with complete CSF-virological suppression (RNA HIV <1 copy/mL). Virological outcomes The proportion of patients with HIV-1 RNA <1 copy/mL in CSF in the LPV/r-MT group was similar to LPV/r-HAART group Three patients on LPV/r-MT had determinations of CSF HIV-1 RNA of 1, 75 and 120 copies/mL. One patient on LPV/r + ABC + 3TC ( LPV/r-HAART group) had a CSF HIV RNA of 2 copies/mL.

Conclusions In the CNS, HIV seems to affect the astrocytes before the microglia/macrophages ( S100-β may be an early marker of sub-optimal anti-retroviral therapy in the CNS) Neuronal damage does not seem to be an early feature of HIV infection of the CNS
Major barriers to cure in HIV infection - Latently infected cells - Low-level persistent viral replication - Anatomical reservoirs Treatment intensification Very early ART To reverse latent infections
