IFN alpha has both antiviral and immunostimulating properties. The ANRS086 Primoferon A Study evaluated in 12 patients with primary HIV infection the tolerance and efficacy of an early and transient administration of pegylated IFN alpha, in addition to highly active antiretroviral therapy. Tolerance was good, and this regimen allowed the early control of HIV replication and rapid decay of the viral reservoir. These results support the initiation of comparative studies with pegylated INF alpha in primary HIV infection.
