Visit our knowledge base for answers to FAQs about American Gene Technologies' HIV cure program and Phase 1 clinical trial.
Exciting Update: We’ve reached a critical step in our mission to cure HIV with gene therapy: withdrawing clinical trial participants from their ARTs. Over the next few months, we’ll be evaluating the data closely.
HIV Clinical Trial Timeline
HIV Cure Countdown
American Gene Technologies is making great progress in our ongoing HIV clinical trial. Here is a countdown from when we first started this journey in 2019 to 2022. We highlight key milestones we’ve achieved so far, as well as future developments we are working toward — all in an effort to potentially cure HIV.

FDA Allows Clinical Trial
After promising pre-clinical studies, the phase 1 trial for AGT103-T was 'greenlit' for a Phase 1 human trial.
Phase 1 Began
American Gene’s Phase 1 trial officially opened and started seeking trial participants.
First Participant Enrolled
The first trial participant was enrolled in the Phase 1 trial of AGT103-T.
First Product Passes Release Testing
After Phase 1 began and the trial participants were enrolled, American Gene manufactured AGT103-T and passed an extensive panel of safety testing.
First Patient Infused
The very first trial participant received an infusion of AGT103-T.
Three Patients with No Serious Adverse Events; DSMB Accelerates Trial
After no serious adverse events were recorded from the first 3 patients, the DSMB voted unanimously to continue the program at a faster pace. The 4th and 5th patient were treated in November 2021.
First Five Patients Show Critical Efficacy Markers
The AGT103-T gene and cell therapy was tested on participants, giving us a sneak peek at efficacy data that normally occurs in Phase 2. The initial data showed blood markers of efficacy in all five clinical trial participants.
First Human Efficacy
Given that participants in the study are living with HIV and have been given a therapeutic dose of the experimental drug, American Gene may actually see some patients go into durable remission and be able to go off of their ARTs.
Phase 2 Approved
A successful Phase 1 will lead to a Phase 2 study, which could be pivotal. Gene and cell therapies frequently get limited license in a Phase 2 study.
Phase 2 Completed
Successful completion of a Phase 2 study may give us the ability to apply for a limited license, sometimes referred to as a BLA. The FDA will consider whether sufficient safety has been shown, and if efficacy is attractive.
Biologics License Agreement (BLA)
We’re hopeful that our clinical successes will merit a license. Provided the successful clinical studies, the BLA will allow American Gene Technologies to offer the therapy commercially.
