Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

Concurrent Medication:

Required:

  • Standard therapy for infections that develop during the study period.
  • Oral acyclovir.
  • Nystatin.
  • Ketoconazole.
  • Immunomodulators.
  • Specific therapy for malignancies (including Kaposi's sarcoma).

Patients must have the following:

  • Diagnosis of AIDS or AIDS related complex (ARC).
  • Provide informed written consent.

Exclusion Criteria

Co-existing Condition:

Patients with the following conditions or symptoms are excluded:

  • Active opportunistic infection or malignancy requiring treatment at study entry.
  • Prior history of psychiatric illness or head injury which in the judgment of the neuropsychologist would impair interpretation of the neurocognitive data.
  • Evidence of central nervous system (CNS) opportunistic infection or malignancy.
  • Serious underlying medical problems, including insulin- dependent diabetes mellitus, unstable ASHD (atherosclerotic heart disease) or uncontrolled hypertension, which may complicate interpretation of treatment results.
  • Dementia.
  • Evidence of = or > 2 + proteinuria at study entry.

Concurrent Medication:

Excluded without permission of the Wyeth-Ayerst medical monitor:

  • Immunomodulators.
  • Specific therapy for malignancies (including Kaposi's sarcoma).

Patients with the following are excluded:

  • Active opportunistic infection or malignancy requiring treatment at study entry.
  • Prior history of psychiatric illness or head injury which in the judgment of the neuropsychologist would impair interpretation of the neurocognitive data.
  • Evidence of conditions listed in the Patient Exclusion Co-existing Conditions.
  • Active substance abuse.
  • Unlikely or unable to comply with the requirements of the protocol.

Prior Medication:

Excluded within 8 weeks of study entry:

  • Immunomodulators.
  • Antiviral therapy, except zidovudine.
  • Excluded within 2 weeks of study entry:
  • Intravenous or oral acyclovir.
  • Excluded within 3 months of study entry:
  • Ribavirin.

Required:

  • Zidovudine at a dose of = or > 1000 mg/day for at least 6 weeks prior to study entry.

Active substance abuse.
