Artery Elasticity After Switch From Epzicom to Truvada

Recent research as suggested that use of the HIV medication abacavir (Ziagen, or co-formulated with lamivudine as Epzicom) may increase risk for heart disease, though findings from multiple studies have been inconsistent. This pilot study will examine vascular function, a marker of heart disease risk, among patients taking abacavir as part of their HIV medications and are then randomized to: 1) switch to tenofovir, another HIV medication, or 2) continue to take abacavir.

NCT00998582 HIV Infections
MeSH: HIV Infections

1 Interventions

Name: Tenofovir disoproxil

Description: Participants taking an abacavir-based HIV treatment regimen will be randomized to switch to a tenofovir-based regimen or continue taking abacavir.

Type: Drug

Abacavir Tenofovir


Primary Outcomes

Description: Small artery elasticity is a measure of vascular function, estimated through analysis of the blood pressure waveform. A sensor is placed on wrist over the radial pulse. The blood pressure waveform of the pulse is recorded and analyzed the elasticity, or compliance, of the small (and large) vasculature. Impaired artery elasticity, or increased stiffness, is an early sign of vascular disease that predicts risk for future cardiovascular events.

Measure: Change in Small Artery Elasticity (mL/mmHg x100) From Baseline to Week 24

Time: Change from baseline to 24 weeks

Description: Large artery elasticity is a measure of vascular function, estimated through analysis of the blood pressure waveform. A sensor is placed on wrist over the radial pulse. The blood pressure waveform of the pulse is recorded and analyzed the elasticity, or compliance, of the large (and small) vasculature. Impaired artery elasticity, or increased stiffness, is an early sign of vascular disease.

Measure: Outcome Was Change in Large Artery Elasticity (mL/mmHg x100) From Baseline to Week 24

Time: Change from baseline to 24 weeks

Purpose: Treatment

Allocation: Randomized
