Clinical Trials for Megestrol Acetate

Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Summary
NCT00000737 A Phase I/II Study to Evaluate Single Agent and Combination Therapy With Megestrol Acetate and Dronabinol for the Treatment of HIV-Wasting Syndrome Completed Bristol-Myers Squibb Phase 1 To obtain data on the safety of administering megestrol acetate and dronabinol as single agents or in combination to patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-wasting syndrome. To obtain preliminary data on the efficacy of single agent and combination therapy with megestrol acetate and dronabinol with regard to weight gain, appetite increase and quality of life in this patient population. To obtain steady-state pharmacokinetics data when megestrol acetate and dronabinol are administered as single agents and in combination. HIV-wasting syndrome, which is characterized by severely debilitating anorexia and weight loss, is of particular concern because it can exacerbate the primary illness and is associated with a poor prognosis. Attempts at maintaining body mass through the use of megestrol acetate and dronabinol, two anti-cachectic drugs, may prolong survival.
NCT00000737 A Phase I/II Study to Evaluate Single Agent and Combination Therapy With Megestrol Acetate and Dronabinol for the Treatment of HIV-Wasting Syndrome Completed Roxane Laboratories Phase 1 To obtain data on the safety of administering megestrol acetate and dronabinol as single agents or in combination to patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-wasting syndrome. To obtain preliminary data on the efficacy of single agent and combination therapy with megestrol acetate and dronabinol with regard to weight gain, appetite increase and quality of life in this patient population.

NCT00000737 A Phase I/II Study to Evaluate Single Agent and Combination Therapy With Megestrol Acetate and Dronabinol for the Treatment of HIV-Wasting Syndrome Completed National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Phase 1 To obtain data on the safety of administering megestrol acetate and dronabinol as single agents or in combination to patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-wasting syndrome. To obtain preliminary data on the efficacy of single agent and combination therapy with megestrol acetate and dronabinol with regard to weight gain, appetite increase and quality of life in this patient population.

NCT00000854 A Study to Evaluate the Effect of Nandrolone Decanoate in Women With HIV-Associated Weight Loss Completed National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Phase 1 The purpose of this study is to see if giving nandrolone decanoate (a hormonal drug) will cause weight gain in HIV-positive women who have HIV-associated weight loss (wasting). Wasting has become an AIDS-defining condition. In the past, most studies that examined wasting treatments were limited to men. However, it appears that wasting in HIV-positive men is linked to levels of testosterone (a hormone which affects men's bodies more than women's). This study has been designed for women only, in order to best treat wasting in HIV-positive women.
NCT00001079 A Study of Megestrol Acetate Alone or in Combination With Testosterone Enanthate Drug in the Treatment of HIV-Associated Weight Loss Completed National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Phase 2 To test the hypothesis that the predominant accrual of fat rather than lean body mass (LBM) that occurs during treatment of HIV-associated wasting with megestrol acetate may be improved by treatment with megestrol acetate and testosterone enanthate in combination. Body wasting is an increasingly frequent AIDS-defining condition in individuals infected with HIV. Increasing caloric intake fails to consistently restore lean tissue patients with HIV associated weight loss. Megestrol acetate has been shown to stimulate appetite and weight gain in subjects with cancer and in those with HIV associated weight loss. However, the weight gained during treatment with megestrol acetate was predominantly or exclusively fat. An important factor is the preferential increase in body fat seen in both of these studies may have been due to hypogonadism that occurs as a result of treatment with megestrol acetate, a progestational agent. Hypogonadism is associated with an increase in body fat and a decrease in LBM. Concomitant testosterone replacement should substantially increase the amount of LBM accrued during megestrol acetate therapy. This study will determine whether anabolic potential can be realized when caloric intake is increased in the absence of concomitant hypogonadism.
