A Pilot, Open-Label, Phase II, Randomized Study to Determine the Effects of Viracept on the Outcome of Cutaneous and Mucosal KS in AIDS Patients With CD4 <= 500 Cells/mm3
A Pilot, Open-Label, Phase II, Randomized Study to Determine the Effects of Viracept on the Outcome of Cutaneous and Mucosal KS in AIDS Patients With CD4 <= 500 Cells/mm3

To determine the effect of Viracept in combination with modified antiretroviral therapy on the outcome of cutaneous and mucosal Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS).

This is an open-label, randomized, pilot, Phase II study of the safety and efficacy of Viracept in combination with modified antiretroviral therapy as treatment in patients with cutaneous and mucosal KS. Patients will be randomized to modify (add or switch or initiate) their current antiretroviral therapy and will add Viracept or remain on their current background antiretroviral therapy for a 2 month period. Initially 20 patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio (i.e., 14 Viracept, 6 control) for a 2 month period. Response to therapy will be evaluated at the end of the 2 month control phase. At this point, patients who were initially assigned to the control arm will continue on open label Viracept for an additional 10 month period.

1. Immediate topical or systemic treatment for KS lesions.

  • Use of Retinoid class drugs, either topically or systemically, or beta-carotene compounds or Vitamin A doses of more than 15,000 IU (5,000 mcg) per day concurrently.

Immediate radiation treatment.

1. Treatment of KS lesions with intra-lesional chemotherapy within 4 weeks of entry.

  • History of > 2 weeks of prior therapy with Indinavir or Ritonavir.
  • Use of Retinoid class drugs, either topically or systemically, or beta-carotene compounds or Vitamin A doses of more than 15,000 IU (5,000 mcg) per day within 4 weeks of entry.
