Number of Participants With Virologic Response (VR) [ Time Frame: baseline to week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
VR is defined as HIV viral load of <50 copies/ml measured at two consecutive visits PRIOR TO Week 48 and without subsequent rebound or change of ARV therapy prior to Week 48.
The primary endpoint is the virologic response (VR) at Week 48. VR is defined as HIV viral load of <50 copies/ml measured at two consecutive visits by Week 48 and without subsequent rebound or change of ARV therapy prior to Week 48.
