Effect of Low Dose Methotrexate on Arterial Inflammation in HIV

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

A5314 is a phase II, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to
evaluate the safety and efficacy of low dose methotrexate (LDMTX) for the
treatment for HIV-associated inflammation. The ancillary study will assess
the impact of anti-inflammatory treatment with LDMTX on arterial
inflammation, as assessed by FDG-PET/CT imaging in virally suppressed
HIV-infected individuals already taking part in the main A5314 protocol.
