  Purpose

To determine the proportion of patients whose plasma HIV-1 RNA level falls below the level of detection (< 400 copies/ml) at week 16 and 24 of study therapy. To determine the absolute change in plasma HIV-1 RNA and in absolute CD4 cell count during the 24 weeks of study treatment. To collect safety data on the treatment regimens. To determine the percentage of patients without SQV soft gel capsules resistance-associated mutations at week 24.
