Condition hiv-1 infection
Sponsor Gen-Probe, Incorporated
Start date January 2014
End date February 2015
Trial size 468 participants
Trial identifier NCT02026752, HIVQPS-US12-001, HIVQPS-US12-002, HIVQPS-US12-003, HIVQPS-US12-004


The objective is to obtain plasma samples from Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) infected individuals that have viral loads across the dynamic range of the Aptima HIV-1 assay. The plasma samples will be tested in a method comparison study to support the approval of the Aptima HIV-1 assay on Gen-Probe's Panther testing system. The objective of the method comparison study is to evaluate the clinical utility of the Aptima HIV-1 assay by comparing the results to the FDA-licensed COBAS assay (Roche Molecular Systems, Inc., Branchburg, New Jersey) in plasma samples that have viral loads across the dynamic range of the Aptima HIV-1 assay.

Quantitative detection of HIV-1 RNA
time frame: single baseline visit

Eligibility Criteria

All participants at least 15 years old.

Inclusion Criteria - The subject has documented HIV infection - The subject is at least 15 years of age at the time of enrollment - For ART subjects, subject has documented HIV-1 RNA levels above the lower limit of quantitation of an FDA-approved assay in a sample collected in the past 90 days. - The subject (and/or legally authorized representative, if allowed) is willing and able to provide written informed consent before providing a specimen (a minor will need the documented consent of his/her parent or legal guardian, unless the site has an institutional review board [IRB]-approved waiver for parental consent for minors). Exclusion Criteria - A potential subject will be ineligible for the study if the subject, clinician, or medical record reports any of the following: - Subject's HIV disease stage and/or current ART status is unknown. - It is unknown if current or previous ART was changed or stopped due to therapy failure. - For non-ART subjects, subject was previously on ART in the past 30 days - Subject already participated in this study and subject's previous sample(s) was provided and not withdrawn (ie, subject has an evaluable sample in the study) - Subject has a history of illness that the principal investigator (PI) or designee considers could interfere with or affect the conduct, results, and/or completion of the study - Subject has a history of illness that the PI or designee considers could create an unacceptable risk to the subject if enrolled in the study
