Randomized, Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Anti-inflammatory Efficacy of Letermovir (Prevymis) in Adults With Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-1 and Asymptomatic Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Who Are on Suppressive ART and Its Effect on Chronic Inflammation, HIV Persistence, and Other Clinical Outcomes
This is a phase 2, randomized, open-label, controlled, multicenter trial to evaluate the anti-inflammatory efficacy of letermovir, administered once daily for 48 weeks in adults with HIV and asymptomatic CMV, who are on ART-mediated suppression. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive either letermovir or no anti-CMV treatment. A futility analysis will be performed after the first 40 participants to initiate study treatment reach their 8-week study visit. Study enrollment will be paused after the 40th participant starts treatment until the results of the futility analysis have been considered.
