Brief Summary of Protocol:

Detailed Description of Protocol:
The research will test a drug called 3BNC117, which is a monoclonal antibody to HIV, the virus the causes AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). A monoclonal antibody is an artificial substance made in the laboratory. An antibody is a substance that the body makes in response to an infection. The monoclonal antibody we are testing attaches to HIV, and can block HIV from attacking cells in your body and from spreading to other parts of the body. 3BNC117 is being developed to treat and potentially prevent HIV infection. In this research we will test this monoclonal antibody in HIV-positive people with well controlled HIV infection, and on combination antiretroviral therapy (HIV pills). The monoclonal antibody, 3BNC117, being tested was designed by scientists at Rockefeller University and was manufactured at Celldex Therapeutics Inc. One of the reasons to do this study is to find out if it is safe to give this antibody. Another reason is to determine how this antibody might affect HIV levels in HIV-infected individuals who are taking HIV pills and during a brief interruption of these medications.
