Number of Participants Experiencing Study Drug-Related Grade 3 or Higher Adverse Events (AEs)
An adverse event (AE) is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation participant administered a pharmaceutical product which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. The investigator assesses the relationship of each event to the use of the study drug as either having a reasonable possibility or no reasonable possibility. AEs are given a grade from 1-5 with Grade 3 being severe but not life-threatening and requiring hospitalization, Grade 4 being life-threatening requiring immediate intervention and Grade 5 being death related to an AE.
Number of Participants With Study Drug-Related Immune-Related Adverse Events (IRAE)
Assessed using the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) IRAE management guidelines [which utilizes the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) grading scale] but modified, as applicable, according to the NIH Division of AIDS (DAIDS) (v2.1) AE grading scale.

How does budigalimab work?

These data indicate that BDG therapy has little or no effect on immune activation, and suggests that, at least in the initial period of B cell activation, this BCR-mimetic lacks an anti-CD40 effect.

Can hiv infections be cured?

The HIV/AIDS epidemic cannot be won in the foreseeable future, and most patients with stable HIV infections will need lifelong treatment to suppress viral replication. Effective therapeutic strategies to control HIV, either directly or by indirect ways, require the full development of viral immunity and functional HIV-specific T cell responses.

What causes hiv infections?

the virus itself doesn't directly cause AIDS, but certain viruses that cause AIDS worsen the chances that infected people will get it. But how is AIDS caused? HIV causes immunosuppression, the weakening of protective immunity that helps protect against diseases such as malaria and other opportunistic infections. The immunosuppression that occurs as a result of HIV infection also makes people at higher risk for developing all of the types of HIV-associated cancers.\n

Anonymous Patient Answer

What are the signs of hiv infections?

Signs of hiv infections are similar to signs of depression and are manifested by significant loss of appetite, weight loss and decreased appetite, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Also hiv infection has a profound effect on the immune system as manifested by the onset of opportunistic infections.

What are common treatments for hiv infections?

The most common treatments for HIV are antiretroviral therapy in combination with other therapy, including antiproliferative therapy, anti-HIV treatment for opportunistic infections, immunosuppression, and prophylaxis against sexually transmitted infections. In the absence of effective treatment, individuals with HIV-related illnesses must rely on supportive care to maintain their health.

Anonymous Patient Answer

How many people get hiv infections a year in the United States?

About 8% of HIV-positive women in the U.S. have an HIV-positive husband/boyfriend or a sexual partner. As a result of this sexual link, about 24% of women with HIV are at high risk for acquisition of HIV. The sexual spread of AIDS may be much more common than is currently recognized, because HIV-positive men are less likely to have unprotected sex with females.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for hiv infections?

Because no evidence-based treatment regimen currently exists for hiv infections, clinical trial participation may not be in the best interests of people diagnosed with HIV infection, particularly when considering the financial and time costs of clinical trial participation. However, if the potential benefits of clinical trial participation outweigh potential risks, more HIV infected individuals should consider participation.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Does budigalimab improve quality of life for those with hiv infections?

Budigalimab is the first therapy to produce improvements in quality of life, quality of appetite, and quality of sleep that are statistically significant and clinically relevant. Budigalimab is an effective treatment for CD22-positive B cells in patients with hiv, as assessed by the patient-reported outcomes of quality of life and quality of sleep and appetite.
