Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics of a human monoclonal antibody (VRC07-523LS) in the sera and mucosae of healthy, HIV-uninfected adults.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Biological: VRC07-523LS Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This study will evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics of a human monoclonal antibody (VRC07-523LS) in the sera and mucosae of healthy, HIV-uninfected adults.

Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. Participants in Group 1 will receive 10 mg/kg of VRC07-523LS at Weeks 0, 16, and 32. Participants in Group 2 will receive 30 mg/kg of VRC07-523LS at Weeks 0, 16, and 32.

Study visits will occur at Weeks 0, 2, 16, 18, 32, 34, and 48. Visits may include physical examinations; blood and urine collection; rectal, cervicovaginal, and seminal secretion collection; cervical, rectal, and vaginal biopsy collection; HIV testing; risk reduction counseling; and questionnaires. Study staff will contact participants at Week 50 for follow-up safety monitoring.

  • A rectal condition (for rectal biopsies), such as an active infection or inflammation of the colorectal area (eg, an HSV-2 outbreak or inflamed hemorrhoids or colitis/diarrhea), internal hemorrhoids, or any other condition noted during screening rectal exam via anoscope or in medical history that in the opinion of the clinician represents a contraindication to mucosal sampling.
  • For those who were assigned female sex at birth (for vaginal and cervical biopsies), any condition noted during pelvic exam via speculum or in medical history that in the opinion of the clinician represents a contraindication to mucosal sampling (eg, bacterial vaginosis).
  • An active genital tract condition, such as an active infection or inflammation of the genital tract (eg, genital sores or ulcers, penile or abnormal vaginal discharge, genital warts that are symptomatic or requiring treatment) or any other condition that in the opinion of the clinician represents a contraindication to mucosal sampling.
  • Hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy
  • Menopause
  • Current use of anticoagulants
