A Study of 1592U89 in HIV-Infected Children
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe to give 1592U89 to children (aged 6 months until 14th birthday) with advanced HIV infection who have few treatment options available. The study also examines the effect 1592U89 has on the levels of HIV in the blood.
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||1592U89 Open-Label Protocol for Pediatric Patients With HIV Infection.|
This is an open-label, non-randomized study. All patients will be treated with 1592U89. Additionally, since optimal therapy usually includes the combined use of 2 or more antiretroviral agents in advanced patients, other novel antiretroviral therapies may be accessed through commercial means or via compassionate use programs. NOTE: 1592U89 should not be administered as a single new agent added to a failing treatment regimen.
