NCT00619944 ↗ Drug Interaction Study Between Lumefantrine and Lopinavir/Ritonavir Completed University of Liverpool Phase 4 2008-02-01 With the roll out of antiretroviral therapy (ARV) for HIV across sub-Saharan Africa an unprecedented number of people will be commencing lifelong therapy. Current estimates are that 5-6 million people in sub-Saharan Africa require ART. At the same time, the World Health Organization (WHO) Roll Back Malaria campaign is aggressively promoting the use of artemether/lumefantrine as first-line therapy for malaria in this setting. Many patients in this setting have already become resistant to first-line ARV and have moved onto lopinavir/ritonavir (Kaletra) based second-line regimens. Kaletra is a potent inhibitor of Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP 3A4), an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of many drugs which is found predominantly in the liver and the gut. Lumefantrine, and to a lesser extent artemether, is extensively metabolized by CYP 3A4. Therefore when given to a patient already taking Kaletra for HIV, it is likely that elevated levels of these drugs in the patient will result. There is some concern that lumefantrine may be cardiotoxic due to its structural similarity to halofantrine which is known to cause irregular heart rhythms. This has not been borne out as yet in any studies performed with lumefantrine, however it is not known what levels will be achieved in patients when it is administered with a protease inhibitor such as Kaletra. The WHO has not addressed this issue in any of its previous policy documents but has identified ARV-antimalarial drug interaction studies as a research priority. This single dose pharmacokinetic (PK) study aims to compare the levels of lumefantrine/artemether that result when it is given to a patient on Kaletra with patients not on any ARV. Data generated by this study will help address this important knowledge gap which has been identified by WHO and others as meriting urgent investigation.

NCT00620438 ↗ Drug Interaction Between Coartem® and Nevirapine, Efavirenz or Rifampicin in HIV Positive Ugandan Patients Unknown status Health Research Board, Ireland Phase 4 2008-02-01 There are increasing numbers of HIV-infected patients in sub-Saharan Africa receiving antiretroviral drugs and/or rifampicin based antituberculous therapy. HIV infected patients are at an increased risk of contracting malaria. Increasing resistance to anti-malarials such as chloroquine, amodiaquine, fansidar, sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine in East and West Africa has led the WHO to recommend artemether-lumefantrine (Coartem®- Novartis) as first line therapy for malaria for adults and children. As early as 2004, fourteen countries in sub-Saharan Africa had adopted this guideline as national policy. There are no data on the interaction between Coartem® and any of the antiretroviral agents. Both components of Coartem® are substrates for the 3A4 isoform of cytochrome P450. Despite the lack of data, antiretroviral drugs and/or antituberculous drugs in addition to Coartem® are of necessity co-prescribed daily in the African setting. Nevirapine, efavirenz and rifampicin are known inducers of cytochrome P450 3A4. A technical consultation convened by WHO in June, 2004 concluded that additional research on interactions between antiretroviral and antimalarial drugs is urgently needed. We propose to perform a suite of pharmacokinetic studies to evaluate these interactions in HIV infected Ugandan patients. The aim of these studies is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic interaction between Coartem® and commonly co-prescribed inducers of 3A4 i.e. nevirapine, efavirenz and rifampicin. 1. Comparison of steady state pharmacokinetics of Coartem® in HIV-infected patients prior to commencement of nevirapine and at nevirapine steady state 2. Comparison of steady state pharmacokinetics of Coartem® in HIV-infected patients prior to commencement of efavirenz and at efavirenz steady state 3. Comparison of steady state pharmacokinetics of Coartem® in Ugandan patients at rifampicin steady state and without rifampicin

NCT01663922 ↗ Boceprevir and Ucalm (St John&Apos;s Wort) Completed University of Liverpool Phase 1 2012-08-01 The purpose of the study is to look at whether taking a new medication for hepatitis C (boceprevir) together with a herbal remedy commonly used for the treatment of depression (SJW) has any effect on the levels of boceprevir in the blood, compared to when boceprevir is taken on its own. Treatment of hepatitis C genotype-1, has recently been significantly improved with the addition of a new class of drugs called protease inhibitors (PIs). Boceprevir belongs to this class of antiviral drugs and it is administered in combinations with other drugs to treat hepatitis C. One of the common side effects of treatment for hepatitis C is low mood (depression) for which treated patients may self-medicate with preparations containing St. Johns Wort (SJW). SJW is known to cause drug interactions, so taking SJW at the same time as boceprevir may result in a change in how both of these drugs usually work. It is therefore important to find out if the levels of boceprevir in the blood are significantly affected by taking SJW. The study aims to help us understand whether it will be safe to take SJW whilst being simultaneously treated for hepatitis C with boceprevir.
