RIVER trial – Research In Viral Eradication of HIV Reservoirs

RIVER Trial

Targeting the HIV ‘reservoir’ could be the first step to understanding how to cure the infection

The RIVER trial is now open for recruitment in the UK. It is one of the first clinical trials to test a new idea of how to cure HIV, through waking a ‘reservoir’ of cells infected with sleeping virus and killing them using the immune system. This idea has been called ‘Kick and Kill’ and this study will investigate if it might work.

The RIVER study is being conducted by the CHERUB collaboration, an alliance of HIV researchers at Oxford University, Imperial College London, the University of Cambridge, UCL, and King’s College London. The study is funded by the Medical Research Council with support from industry partners MSD and GSK.

There are 6 centres participating in RIVER: Royal Free Hospital, St Mary’s Hospital, Mortimer Market Centre, Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and St Thomas’s Hospital.

The results of the RIVER study are expected in 2018.
