Percentage of Participants With HIV-1 Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) < 200 Copies/mL Through Week 48 Based on Time to Loss of Virologic Response (TLOVR) Algorithm [ Time Frame: Baseline to 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The percentage of participants with HIV-1 RNA < 200 copies/mL based on TLOVR algorithm at Week 48 was summarized. Participants were considered nonresponders in the TLOVR analysis if they experienced virologic rebound prior to or at Week 48, discontinued study before Week 48, or added a new antiretroviral (ARV) agent prior to completion of the study. Virologic rebound was defined as 2 consecutive HIV-1 RNA values >= 200 copies/mL or the last HIV-1 RNA value >= 200 copies/mL followed by discontinuation from the study.
To determine the proportion of subjects who maintain HIV 1 RNA <50 copies/mL through Week 48. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Safety and Efficacy Study of Switching From Epzicom to Truvada
A Prospective, Randomized, Open Label Phase IV Study to Evaluate the Rationale of Switching From Fixed Dose Abacavir (ABC)/Lamivudine (3TC) to Fixed Dose Tenofovir DF (TDF)/Emtricitabine (FTC) in Virologically Suppressed, HIV-1 Infected Patients Maintained on a Ritonavir Boosted Protease Inhibitor Containing Antiretroviral Regimen

This protocol describes a prospective, randomized, open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of switching from fixed dose abacavir (ABC)/lamivudine (3TC) to fixed dose emtricitabine (FTC)/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) in virologically suppressed, human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infected subjects maintained on a ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitor (PI/r)-containing antiretroviral (ARV) regimen. Duration of treatment is 48 weeks.

This protocol describes a prospective, randomized, open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of switching from fixed dose ABC/3TC to fixed dose FTC/TDF in virologically suppressed, HIV-1 infected subjects maintained on a PI/r-containing ARV regimen.

Subjects were stratified based on the PI/r (ie, lopinavir/ritonavir [LPV/r] versus other boosted PIs) in their regimen, and the presence versus absence of comorbidities at screening (diabetes mellitus or cardiovascular disease such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, hyperlipidemia, history of myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, or arrhythmias). Subjects were randomized 1:1 to switch to FTC/TDF+PI/r or to continue on their existing regimen.

Subjects received study treatment for 48 weeks.

    • The subject must have a plasma HIV-1 RNA level less than 200 copies/mL using the AmpliPrep/Taqman HIV-1 Test or Roche Amplicor HIV-1 Monitor Test Version 1.5 Ultrasensitive method at least 3 months prior to the screening visit, as the "qualifying HIV-1 RNA."
    • HIV-1 RNA less than 200 copies/mL measured by bDNA (Chiron 3.0) may be used as a qualifying HIV-1 RNA for entry to the study but not for the confirmatory HIV-1 RNA.
    • The subject must have a confirmed second plasma HIV-1 RNA less than 200 copies/mL at screening, as the "confirmatory HIV-1 RNA."
    • The subject must not have a plasma HIV-1 RNA greater than or equal to 200 copies/mL between the qualifying and confirmatory HIV-1 RNA measurements.
