Evaluation of an Anti-HIV Drug Combination That Includes a Coated Form of Didanosine (ddI EC) Compared to a Typical Anti-HIV Drug Regimen
Evaluation of HIV RNA Suppression Produced by a Triple Combination Regimen Containing an Enteric Coated Formulation of Didanosine (ddI EC) Administered Once Daily Compared to a Reference Combination Regimen

This study tests a new form of didanosine, ddI EC, a coated pill that passes through the stomach before dissolving. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of an anti-HIV drug combination that includes ddI EC versus another anti-HIV drug combination.

Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 groups for 48 weeks of open-label treatment. Group 1 receives ddI EC plus d4T plus NFV. Group 2 receives Combivir plus NFV. Antiviral activity is determined by the proportion of patients with HIV RNA levels of less than 400 copies/ml at Week 48.
