Felizarta, Franco, M.D.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01010399
First received: November 9, 2009
Last updated: March 26, 2012
Last verified: March 2012
  Purpose

In subjects on boosted protease inhibitor (PI)-regimens who have elevated triglycerides, a switch to fosamprenavir/ritonavir once daily followed by the addition of Lovaza will result in 30% of patients achieving a reduction in fasting triglycerides < 200 mg /dL while maintaining virologic suppression.
