Differences Between Women and Men Taking a Combination of Indinavir, Ritonavir, Enteric-Coated Didanosine, and Stavudine Who Previously Took Anti-HIV Drugs
A Study of the Combination of Indinavir, Ritonavir, Enteric-Coated ddI and d4T In Nucleoside and Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor Experienced Patients: An Open-Label Study Investigating Differences Between Women and Men

The purpose of this study is to see how safe and effective it is to give multi-drug treatment with indinavir (IDV) plus ritonavir (RTV) plus enteric-coated didanosine (ddI) plus stavudine (d4T) and if there are differences in responses between men and women.

Patients are enrolled in balanced numbers based on gender and stratified by viral load (less than or equal to 10,000, 10,000 to 100,000, or more than 100,000 copies/ml). Prior to therapy, a peer-based patient education intervention is presented. Patients receive a combination of IDV, RTV, enteric-coated ddI, and d4T. Responses to this multi-agent antiretroviral drug regimen are explored based on sex differences. A pharmacokinetic sub-study, balanced so that half of patients are male and half are female, is performed on IDV and RTV for 20 to 25 of the patients. About 20 females are examined for study-drug effects on gonadotropic hormone levels.

  • Have received anti-HIV treatment previously with an NNRTI plus an NRTI combination or only NRTIs for greater than 8 weeks and, if not currently on treatment, have been off treatment for 12 weeks or less.
  • Failed to keep their viral load low during previous anti-HIV treatment.
  • Are at least 18 years of age.
  • Agree to use an effective barrier method of birth control.

Exclusion Criteria

Patients will not be eligible for this study if they:

  • Have used a protease inhibitor for more than 14 days.
  • Have used ddI or d4T for more than 30 days.
  • Are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Have an opportunistic (AIDS-related) infection requiring treatment at the time of enrollment.
  • Have, or appear to have, peripheral neuropathy (a painful condition affecting the nervous system) at the time of screening.
  • Are at risk for, or have had, pancreatitis (disease of the pancreas).
  • Have difficulty absorbing medications.
  • Have a cancer, other than Kaposi's sarcoma, that may require systemic treatment.
  • Have any medical condition or treatment that may cause a rise in viral load.
