DESIGN APPROACHES FOR CURRENT AND FUTURE HIV PREVENTION EFFICACY TRIALS

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP SERIES
OCTOBER 2020 TO JANUARY 2021

Session 1: Current efficacy trial design approaches – Challenges and lessons learned

HIV prevention is evolving rapidly with the roll out of new tools such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and treatment as prevention making a significant contribution towards controlling the epidemic.

As a result, the design and conduct of the next generation of prevention trials is impacted and is further affected by the outcomes of ongoing HIV prevention efficacy trials – including oral and injectable antiretrovirals, passively infused monoclonal antibodies, and HIV vaccines.

The first session of the virtual workshop aims to reflect on current trial designs and lessons learned. This session is supported by six bite-size presentations and a panel discussion of the current scientific approaches for establishing efficacy of vaccines in the broader context or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).

Help us framing the live conversation on 27 October 2020 by watching these bite-size talks and submitting your questions and comments ahead of time using the link under each presentation. You can also email us directly at Enterprise@Iasociety.org and of course get in touch if you need help navigating the event.

Community-Informed Efforts Towards the MOSAICO Study (S1-04)

Stephaun Wallace, Ph.D, M.S.
University of Washington

In this presentation Stephaun Wallace stresses the importance and benefits of community-informed involvement in the design and implementation of the MOSAICO study.

HPTN 083: Where did we go right?​(S1-05)

Raphael Landovitz, MD
University of California

Raphael Landovitz tells us what went right in the HPTN 083 study of the long acting antiviral Cabotegravir. New data are presented and emphasis is put on adhering to scientifically rigorous principles and persevering despite the retention challenge.

Contingency Plans: Modelling effectiveness using counterfactuals (S1-06)

Deborah Donnell, Ph.D. 
Fred Hutchinson

Deborah Donnell presents the contingency plans based on a counterfactual approach that were designed should both products tested in HPTN 083 be equally successful and the trial might not have achieved a clear non-inferiorly result.

PrEPVacc concepts – Registrational cohort and prequalification period (S1-07)

Eugene Ruzagira, MBChB, MPH, Ph.D.
MRC/UVRI Uganda Research Unit

In this presentation, Eugene Ruzagira outlines the protocol of the Multi Arms Multi Steps (MAMS) PrEPVacc study, the first efficacy trial to test a prophylactic vaccine and PrEP at the same time and that uses a dedicated registration cohort to estimate HIV incidence in the study population.

Pre-randomization incidence can approximate a control group

David Glidden, Ph.D.
University of California San Francisco

Following on Eugene Ruzagira presentation of the PrEPVacc efficacy trial, David Glidden discusses the study design and the use of a registration cohort to approximate a control group. Other designs, such as the regency design, are also discussed.
