The Study sponsor (TaiMed Biologics, Inc) made ibalizumab to treat HIV. Ibalizumab is an antibody. The sponsor made ibalizumab to block the HIV virus from getting in your CD4 cells or T-helper cells. This would help stop the HI from making more copies of itself. This study wants to test how safe ibalizumab is and how well it works. Ibalizumab is meant for people, whose HIV is resistant to many types of HIV drugs when taken with other drugs to treat HIV.
