A5325 A Prospective Randomized Controlled Study to Evaluate the Effect of Isotretinoin on Immune Activation among HIV-1-Infected Subjects with Incomplete CD4+ T cell Recovery on Suppressive ART

  • Question: To evaluate the safety and tolerability of taking isotretinoin (a drug that is approved for use in the treatment of severe acne) at a high dose in HIV-infected subjects on antiretroviral therapy and whether it can help improve the immune system by repairing some of the damage that HIV does to a person’s immune system.
  • POP: HIV-1 infected adults who have been virologically suppressed on ART for at least 12 months and with CD4+T cell count <350 cells/mm3 at screening.   
  • Medication: Isotretinoin
